The Ottawa Law Review (OLR ) is accepting applications for Assistant Editors for the 2018/2019 academic year. 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 sufficiently bilingual to edit in French.
Please email your application package in PDF format to the attention of Human Resources Manager, Mr. Cody Watson, at firstname.lastname@example.org before 4:00 pm on Friday, September 14, 2018.
Thank you for your interest and good luck!
