I've never felt so pressured into participating in school events as I do in law school. Here, things like moot court and law review will actually influence your chances of getting a job, so I kind of understand it, but the pressure is uniform. So if I was a yes-man, I'd be on law review, moot court, getting a dual degree, doing an externship, joining a "think-tank" club, all while learning a different language. And, oh yeah, going to law school. But no one in any of these organizations is willing to admit that their organization is right for a certain group of people. That you have to tailor your participation to fit your needs, and that these organizations/groups are for people interested in a certain type of law or who want to cultivate a certain type of skill. It's always "yes". They always have a long list of reasons why you should join, but never any for why you shouldn't.
