Smarter Than You!

Whose sooooper smart writing is this?

Who is the most excellent Ivy League web editor today?

Click me, baby!

  • "Since the merits of the Law Review’s selection policy has been the subject of commentary for the last three issues, I’d like to take the time to clarify exactly how our selection process works"
  • "Once all the writing competition submissions have been graded, these scores, as well as the law school transcripts of all those who have chosen to release the [sic], are submitted to a Selection Committee made up of the President ad [sic]two other Review editors who have been elected by their fellow editors."
  •  "It is at this stage that the Law Review as [sic] for several years instituted an affirmative action policy for historically underrepresented groups: (ed note: HAR!).
  • "In no event is the Selection Committee required to meet any set quotas."
  • "No editors on the Review will ever know whether any given editor was selected on the basis of grades, writing competition, or affirmative action, and no editors who were selected with affirmative action in mind. [sic]"
  • "The Review as a body feels that the success of the program speaks for itself."
  • "diversity can and should be the companion of quality legal scholarship" (Ed note: clearly!!) 
  •  "Let me end by emphasizing that the Review is committed to including the widest range of viewpoints on its editorial staff, and strongly encourages 1L [sic] women and men of all backgrounds and ideological stripes to participate in this year’s writing competition."
  •  "as someone who has undoubtedly benefited from affirmative action programs during my academic career, and as someone who may have benefited from the Law Review’s affirmative action policy when I was selected to join the Review last year, I have not personally felt stigmatized either within the broader law school community or as a staff member of the Review." [Ed note: NO COMMENT]
  • "I would therefore agree with the suggestion that in the future, our concern in this area ia [sic] most appropriately directed at any employer who would even insinuate that someone with Mr. Chen’s extraordinary record of academic success might be somehow unqualified for work in a corporate law firm, or that such success might be somehow undeserved."
  • "Such attributes speak less.."
At least he admits to being a poster child of affirmative action  reverse racism policies. He couldn't write, and was the affirmative action choice, but at least he never felt stigmatized-and that's the main thing!
