Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran, please consider applying to be a Line Editor (LE) for the fall issue of The Harvard International Law Journal! HILJ is the oldest and most-cited student-edited journal of international law.
Line editing offers an outstanding opportunity to shape cutting edge legal scholarship and to hone your Bluebooking skills. LEs help manage the sub-citing process, compiling source materials and ensuring articles’ technical perfection. This position is also a great springboard for a more senior editorial role on the HILJ Print Team or a position on the journal’s board. Students with a strong interest in academic writing or legal scholarship are especially encouraged to apply.
As a Line Editor you will gain familiarity with locating, vetting, and checking legal sources from domestic, foreign, and international sources. Line Editors serve a vital role and are responsible for compiling sources, ensuring technical consistency and correctness, and verifying that our articles are well-substantiated. Source and editing responsibilities begin in fall 2022 and extend through December 2022.
