Law Review is the most overrated institution in law school. If you want to be a trial litigator, take trial litigation courses, moot court, mock trial, etc. If you want to be a law clerk or work in the biggest law firm in L.A., definitely join law review. But life is too short to do things that you don't want to do. Even if you want to be a judical clerk, don't join law review if your life is going to be miserable. Nobody should do anything for a reason in the future. They should do it assuming they would still want to be there even if they never got the job they wanted. Would they still be there knowing they'll never be a judicial clerk? Then they shouldn't do it. Just my two cents, but I have more of a Zen philosophy that many people would be best to ignore.
