Should students not be law review editors?

Pretty harsh stuff here (scroll down), collected by the ABA Journal’s “Around the Blawgosphere”:

The New York Times’ Adam Liptak took aim at the fact that law students edit the publications. “These student editors are mostly bright and work hard, but they are young, part-time amateurs who know little about the law or about editing prose. Yet they are in charge of picking the best articles from among many hundreds of submissions written by professors with authentic expertise in fields the students may never have studied.”

Could this be true or are these fightin’ words? What’s your experience?
