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 firstname.lastname@example.org by 28 October 2016.
