Associate Editors are required to write a piece of legal scholarship of publishable quality. This is a unique opportunity to explore an interesting legal controversy and propose a creative solution to the problem. Authoring and publishing a dynamic, well-reasoned piece of scholarship can be personally fulfilling and professionally rewarding.

The MLR Notes Office publishes Notes and Comments from the following categories of student authors:

  • Current MLR members may submit Notes and Comments.
  • MLR alumni may submit Notes and Comments up to a year after graduation. After that year, alumni may no longer submit Notes or Comments (but may submit to the Articles Office).
  • Non-MLR 2Ls and 3Ls may also submit Notes and Comments to the Notes Office during their time at Michigan.
  • Beginning in Volume 119, current Notes Editors may not submit Notes for publication. However, they may submit to Calls before and/or after their tenure.
  • Authors that have previously published a Note or Comment are eligible to be published a second time, but the Selection Committee will prioritize pieces by authors that have not previously had the opportunity to publish.
