Seniors Amal Yamusah and Aaron Francis realize that law school is even more expensive and that the lawyer job market is tougher than before. The commented that people come into college wanting to be lawyers, but at the end of their years at university, their enthusiasm dies down. “I don’t know what turns people off, maybe [taking] the LSAT or the prep stuff, or that legal writing requires you to read carefully and closely,” according to dailyreportonline.com

The pair wanted to start a law journal to help their schools pre-law program get a boost as well as to have an outstanding citation in their applications when they apply to law schools. The pair wanted to “create a sense of legal scholarship” that they both felt was missing.
