Assistant Editors

The Assistant Editor is a volunteer position is reserved for first-year law students. In some circumstances, the OLR will make exceptions for interested second-year law students. 

Assistant Editors are responsible for
•    Researching primary and secondary source materials; and
•    Locating materials referenced by authors to ensure that citations are accurate.

As an Assistant Editor, you can expect to
•    Learn hard legal skills (research, writing, and critical thinking);
•    Join a collegial team environment;
•    Receive mentorship from upper-year law students;
•    Attend OLR events, such as the Annual OLR Dinner and Symposium; and
•    Network with the OLR’s alumni, who are now pillars of the Canadian legal profession.

While the OLR is a bilingual academic journal, we do not require our editors to be bilingual; the OLR seeks students who speak French, English, or both.

To apply, please submit your resume and a one-page cover letter describing
•    Why you would be an ideal candidate for the Assistant Editor position; and
•    Why you would like to join the OLR; and 
•    Whether you are bilingual to comfortably edit in French.

Please email your application package in one PDF format to the attention of Human Resources Manager, Mr. Cody Watson, at before 4:00 pm on Friday, September 14, 2018. 

Successful candidates will be contacted by Tuesday, September 18, 

Thank you for your interest and good luck!
