JILP Seeking L.L.M. Graduate Editors

JILP is cur­rent­ly solic­it­ing appli­ca­tions for mem­ber­ship on the jour­nal from NYU LL.M. stu­dents. Those who are accept­ed will be “Grad­u­ate Edi­tors” on JILP, and will be respon­si­ble for three hours per week of office hours and for ful­fill­ing oth­er addi­tion­al peri­od­ic respon­si­bil­i­ties through­out the term. Grad­u­ate Edi­tors’ duties will con­sist of read­ing and assess­ing arti­cles sub­mit­ted to the jour­nal, assist­ing in the pro­duc­tion of stu­dent Notes with­in their fields of spe­cial­ty, and also, in some cas­es, aid­ing in edi­to­r­i­al and cita­tion-check­ing work.  JILP is focused on build­ing out its online con­tent to pro­vide more oppor­tu­ni­ties for all mem­bers, includ­ing Grad­u­ate Edi­tors, to pub­lish short com­ments and longer arti­cles.  Grad­u­ate Edi­tors will be involved in both read­ing and review­ing mate­r­i­al for online pub­li­ca­tion as part of this ini­tia­tive.  Grad­u­ate Edi­tors will serve on the jour­nal for one year, and com­mit­ment to ful­fill­ing rel­e­vant respon­si­bil­i­ties in a time­ly and reli­able fash­ion is an absolute require­ment for mem­ber­ship.

Inter­est­ed stu­dents should sub­mit a resume, per­son­al state­ment and short writ­ing sam­ple (option­al) to the con­tact below by Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 14. The per­son­al state­ment should express the applicant’s inter­est in and famil­iar­i­ty with inter­na­tion­al law (as broad­ly under­stood), empha­siz­ing in par­tic­u­lar the applicant’s back­ground, lan­guage skills, and research inter­ests. It should also clear­ly express a ded­i­ca­tion to ful­fill­ing the respon­si­bil­i­ties of a Grad­u­ate Edi­tor, as out­lined above. The per­son­al state­ment should be no more than 1,000 words long, and the resume no more than two pages long.  A writ­ing sam­ple is not required, but will be con­sid­ered if sub­mit­ted.  The writ­ing sam­ple should be a piece of legal or aca­d­e­m­ic writ­ing of no more than ten pages (an excerpt of a longer arti­cle is fine). It need not be focused on inter­na­tion­al law.
