Public Policy journals

In the field of law, the leading edge of legal thought is led by law students in the form of university law journals. So why isn’t the world of policymaking driven by university public policy students in the form of public policy journals? I’m less interested in this as an abstract question (I suspect much of the answer has to do with public policy schools being relative academic newcomers compared to law) and more in how its implications might be used as a counterweight against moneyed interests in Washington. A world in which university students are playing some bigger role in setting the policy agenda and providing expertise used by Congress is a world in which lobbyists have a little less influence.
