Student editor

The Co-editors of the Māori Law Review want to appoint a Student Editor for 2017 to assist with producing the Review.

This is an opportunity to work with a committed team of authors with expertise in legal issues affecting Māori.

The student editor's tasks will include:

  • Coordinating with the editorial team the articles to be published each month;
  • Assisting in the co-ordination of MLR events;
  • Working with other volunteers to assist in the production of a digest of Māori Land Court decisions (including training, assigning cases, editing and feedback);
  • Assisting with the Review’s social media presence; and
  • Attendance at fortnightly editorial meetings with the Co-editors.

The student editor would be expected to work an average of 6 hours per week over 40 weeks, starting in March 2017 with an orientation period in November 2016.

This is an unpaid role but one with significant opportunities for a person interested in working in this area of the law. The Review's former student editors are an impressive group of alumni.

The student editor will have the use of a shared office in the Faculty of Law at Victoria University of Wellington.

Applications should include a cover letter and CV and should be sent to carwyn.jones@maorilawreview.co.nz by 28 October 2016.
