Working for the McGill Law Journal is an invaluable complement to a student’s legal education. The experience allows law students to be exposed to legal scholarship of the highest caliber and to interact with some of the keenest legal minds in the country and around the world. Members also obtain academic credit for their work.
The Journal is wholly student-run and independent of the Faculty of Law. Our members thus have significant responsibilities in upholding the quality of the scholarship published in the Journal. For that reason, we seek to select disciplined students who have a marked interest in legal scholarship and who will involve themselves fully in the Journal.
Students may join the Journal after their first or second year at the McGill Faculty of Law. The selection process is competitive and involves both an application package and an interview. The application package is completed during the spring, and the interviews take place after reading week.
