Join the Harvard International Law Journal Submissions Team to select articles to be published in the oldest and most-cited international law journal edited by students. Available positions include Executive Submissions Editors, Submissions Editors, and Submissions Readers, who are responsible for reading and evaluating articles submitted to the journal. All members of the Submissions Team will have opportunities to participate when the Executive Board meets to deliberate and vote on articles.

These positions are open to all students enrolled for the spring semester — including 1Ls, LLMs, SJDs, and transfer students. Working on the Submissions Team provides invaluable experience for learning about the landscape of international law and the article selection process. The tight knit community of the Submissions Team is, of course, an added plus.

Please be aware that all submissions team members must be free once a week during the regular semester for submissions team meetings via Zoom or in-person (TBD).
