Membership Selection

Associate Editor Selection Procedures

The Michigan Law Review seeks to select a staff of hardworking, diverse individuals with strong analytical and writing skills who will work cooperatively and enthusiastically to produce a scholarly journal.

Each year, the Law Review selects approximately 50 Associate Editors from among the first-year class and eligible dual-degree students. A writing competition for the first-year class is held each May and applicants are notified of selection decisions in early July.

Write-On Policy

In addition to those students admitted to the Michigan Law Review through the Spring Writing Competition, second-year students at Michigan Law may become members of the Law Review by producing and publishing a Note. The Law Review encourages students writing innovative scholarship to consider publishing their papers via the Write-On process.

For more information, including eligibility requirements, please review our Write-On Policy and contact the Executive Notes Editor with questions.

Law Review Note guidelines are published in the Redbook (below). The Redbook may be a helpful tool for Write-On candidates.
