Law Review Open House
Posted 11:09 PM by Brian D.
The purpose of an Open House is to sell something. In this case on Tuesday all three law reviews will have an Open House to sell themselves to potential new members. Regardless if you're a day or a night student, if you have any interest in joining a law review you should go to the Open Houses. Let me tell you why:
  1. These things usually have free food. Who are we kidding, this entire building runs on free food.
  2. You get to ask questions to the people who have been there/done that/bought the law review t-shirt. The answers you get back will tell you the high points and the low points of being on a law review. Is it a lot of work? Yes, but what around here isn't? Is it a pre-made support structure to make you a better writer/researcher/editor while you write your senior writing requirement? Yes.
  3. You'll get a vibe for the people on the law reviews. This can be important especially if you are lucky enough to get multiple offers. Every review has a different feel to it, like a different musical note. No review is better than any other review, but be in tune with yourself and the people you meet. You'll have to work with them for a year or two. Better to be in harmony than dissonance.
  4. You finally get to go into these strange places that you normally don't get access to. Express your inner explorer.
  5. These are an end-of-the-semester party for everyone involved. You'll have a good time with the food, the music, the good conversations. A little stress relief before finals is never a bad idea.

Both Indiana International & Comparative Law Review and the Indiana Law Review are in the third floor law review suite in the library. Just go up the stairs, past the couch, and on the left should be an open set of double doors. II&CLR will be on the left and goes from 4:15 to 6:30. ILR will be on the right and goes from 4:30 to 6:30.

The newest law review, Indiana Health Law Review is on the first floor of the library. Hang a left as if you are going toward the elevator or bathroom. Just past the elevator on your right will be the Christine S. Hall Center for Law and Health. The IHLR Open House is also 4:30 to 6:30.

If you chat with me I'll give you the best answers I can. It will be my last duty with law review. I look forward to meeting some of you.
