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