EditorsFirst-year students and first-time JREG members typically begin as Editors. JREG Editors join an Edit Team for one Article per issue (two Articles per academic year). Editors assist the Articles Editors, Executive Editors, and EICs by verifying the accuracy of an Article’s citations and ensuring that citations comply with the Bluebook and JREG style guidelines. Editors must participate in one sourcecite session per semester.
Lead EditorsAll students (including 1Ls) may also choose to apply to serve as a Lead Editor. Lead Editors will either (a) work directly with an Articles Editor to draft an Edit Letter communicating substantive and stylistic feedback to the Authors, or (b) assist the Managing Editors with logistical arrangements for the sourcecite. The Lead Editor role is an excellent opportunity for individuals seeking an early engagement with academic journal work and greater JREG responsibility. The Lead Editor position is a two semester commitment. Lead Editors must also participate in one sourcecite session per semester.
JREG BoardEach January, JREG conducts slating for the upcoming Volume. All YLS students are encouraged to slate, but previous JREG involvement is strongly preferred. Articles, Submissions, Notes, Bulletin, Projects, and Managing Editor positions are open to all continuing YLS students. Executive Board positions are traditionally reserved for rising third-year students who have demonstrated a strong commitment to JREG. Transfer and LLM students are encouraged to contact the EICs directly regarding higher level opportunities for involvement in JREG.
