Volunteer Editors

Editors working with paper and food on the table.

First year students in the Faculty of Law at Queen's University have the opportunity to get involved with the Queen's Law Journal through the Volunteer Program.

Each year, the Journal takes on approximately 40 law students to participate in various stages of the production process. Volunteer Editors gain experience checking citations, writing abstracts, proofreading, substantive editing and conducting internal reviews. These skills are invaluable for both law school and future legal practice. Moreover, the Journal has been repeatedly recognized as providing the most comprehensive first year volunteer editor program in Canada.
