Jotwell, The Online Journal, Seeks Law Journal Editor

Jotwell, the online journal of reviews of recent faculty scholarship relating to the law, needs a Student Summer Editor. This is a paid position.

The student editor supports faculty editors both at UM and elsewhere, and has a role that is a blend of a substantive editor and a managing editor. Jotwell uses WordPress to publish, but it is easy to learn, so no experience needed.

The ideal candidate will be a current University of Miami School of Law 1L or 2L who is organized, a careful editor and enjoys reading legal scholarship. Although grades are a factor for this position, a demonstrated ability to write and edit may substitute for grades.

The job would start as soon after Spring 2014 final exams as possible and run until mid-August. One or more vacation periods during that time may be negotiated, as long as none of them are for a long continuous period.

Some preference may be given to applicants who indicate that they also would be willing to continue as a part of the team of Student Editors during the 2014-2015 school year, a job that typically takes 7-10 hours per week.

If you are interested, please email your résumé and a copy (unofficial is fine) of your transcript to Professor Michael Froomkin.   Please put “JOTWELL 2014” and your name in the subject line.  If you have a non-legal writing sample please include that also. DO NOT SEND LCOMM writings.

Deadline to apply is April 25, 2014.
