Dear Editors and Journals Staff,

Welcome to the world of Student Journals at Harvard Law School! The goal of the Dean of Students Office Journals Team is to provide students with opportunities to be involved in editing innovative legal scholarship, participate in invaluable critical thinking and writing in a wide array of legal fields, and be a member of a tight-knit community of students who are publishing cutting edge, high quality journals devoted to specific substantive areas of the law.

The thirteen student-edited journals at Harvard, in addition to the Harvard Law Review, publish innovative legal scholarship from top legal academics and practitioners from around the world, and have readerships that span the globe. Congratulations on being a part of such a rich history at HLS!

This handbook was designed to help journal editors and staff members manage the myriad responsibilities of creating a journal and being a part of the journals community—from printing the journal to managing the budget, sending files to the printer and planning event. The Dean of Students Office Journals Team is here to help you every step of the way, and can answer any questions you may have throughout the year. Do not hesitate to contact myself or any member of the Student Journals Office staff at any time for assistance.

I hope you find your journals experience to be a fun, educational, and enriching part of your time at Harvard Law School. Have an excellent year!

Best wishes,

Dean of Students Office Journals Team
