Another Reason I like the Law Review System Better than Peer Review

I keep hearing other law profs say that the peer review system is vastly superior to the law review system for academic articles, and I always wonder if they really know much about the problems with peer review academic journals...here is another reason why I like the law review system better: 

  The article is about scientific journals rejecting papers due to excessive citations to articles in rival journals. The rejection is apparently for the crass, strategic purpose of preventing rival journals from getting more citations and thereby climbing in the rankings of "scholarly impact" lists.
