Student Editors

Role of Student Editors

The FLR produces one volume each year, divided into several issues. Student Editors work closely with the Academic Editors of the FLR to edit and produce the journal. Typically this will involve proofreading articles, checking footnotes, and verifying all sources cited by the authors. Student Editors gain valuable experience in high-level academic writing in law and develop excellent analytical and legal skills. They also get the opportunity to work with the faculty and other law students in the production of an academic publication.

The role is voluntary. Each Student Editor receives a free hard copy of each issue they work on and full online access to all issues ever published (upon request). Student Editors are also acknowledged within the publication.

It is normally expected that students will remain with the Editorial Board for at least two years.
