The student editor is a blend of a substantive editor and a managing editor. Jotwell uses WordPress to publish, but the web publishing platform is easy to learn, so no experience is 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. The job starts soon after exams end but you can have time off once there is enough edited material ready to cover the break. Candidates able to commit to continue working 7-10 hours a week during the 2017-18 academic year will have an advantage.
If you are interested, please email your c.v. and a copy of your transcript (unofficial is fine) to my gmail.com account, which is firstname.lastname@example.org (do the substitution). Please put “JOTWELL Summer 2017” and your name in the subject line.
If you have a non-legal writing sample, or a law school paper (other than LCOMM) please attach that to your email.
