Work with the Managing Editors for Events and the Executive Editors for Online Content to connect with alumni and ensure we are effectively communicating the journal’s scholarship to different audiences.
Executive Technical Editor: Coordinate technical editors, contribute to the CR-CL style guide, and finalize technical edits on articles. Interested applicants should enjoy editing, be highly organized, and be very familiar with Bluebook rules.
Article Selection Editor: Screen outside articles, lead roundtables with General Board members, and determine which articles should proceed to a full General Board vote. Interested applicants should have a strong critical eye, enjoy reading legal scholarship, and be capable of facilitating debate and discussion.
