Upper Year Students

The Editorial Board

The Journal is managed and edited by a board of student editors with the support of a Faculty Advisor. The Faculty Advisor's main role is to provide guidance on questions of policy and substantive issues regarding planning, reviewing and editing, and to ensure that students have a satisfactory experience with the Journal. The editorial board consists of eight editorial positions:

  • Editor-in-Chief
  • Articles Editor
  • Submissions Editor
  • Production Editor
  • Planning & Solicitation Editor
  • Managing Editor (Volunteers)
  • Managing Editor (Business)
  • Style Guide Editor

Selection Criteria

Members of the editorial board, who receive course credit for their work, are selected based primarily on the following criteria: editing ability, writing ability and relevant experience with the Journal. Volunteer editors are selected from a broad pool of applicants, and are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the Journal on a non-credit basis.

Editorial board selection takes place in the spring semester of each year. The process includes the submission of a cover letter, a resume, transcripts and an editing assignment. Candidates are then selected for interviews by senior board members and the Faculty Advisor.

Editorial positions with academic credit are only open to second and third year JD students and LLM students. Once again, first year JD students are highly encouraged to become involved with the Journal on a non-credit basis through our Volunteer Program.
