Why Do I Write (Law Review Articles?)

Tom Smith of The Right Coast provides some data effectively answering the question -- more specific than the last time I asked it -- why do I write law review articles?  And the answer, apart from tenure, self-fulfillment, role orientation, etc., is: damned if I know.  (See the link for explanation.) 

I don't know, though, whether Tom's search included Canadian and foreign law journals.  Even if you can't change American law, you never know what effects you may be having in, say, Canada, or Germany.  So maybe Tom's readers in the legal academy need not be too disheartened.
