I received a phone call last night inviting me to become a junior staff member of the Drake Agricultural Law Journal, and I accepted. It’s a little bittersweet for me.
Part of me is disappointed that I didn’t make Law Review. The Law Review reserves x number of spaces for top-ranked class members if they want to become staff. I am ranked well in my class, but not quite well enough to grade on. Since I wasn’t offered a position on the staff, that means I also didn’t write on.
At the same time, I’m excited to begin exploring a new area of law. I will be doing exactly the same thing for the Journal as I would the Law Review. The only real difference is that I won’t get to choose a note topic on ANYTHING – I will have to relate it to ag law somehow. I’m looking forward to the experience, and the opportunity to maybe get my note published.
