Interested Harvard Law students can email email@example.com to learn more about getting involved with HNLR or sign up for our newsletter. This page will also be updated with locations and times for upcoming HNLR information and training sessions.
Technical Editor: This role is open to all current 2Ls and 3Ls. Technical Editors are principally responsible for assisting executive editors with subcite preparations (such as collecting source documents and drafting article editing “cheat sheets”) and reviewing subciters’ editing, ensuring that every article we publish is substantively accurate and complies with the Bluebook and HNLR style guidelines. Technical Editors also receive masthead distinction and will be receiving free HNLR apparel in the form of a branded journal hat or water bottle. If you are interested in serving as a Technical Editor this fall, please fill out this form.
Membership Chair: The Membership Chair will plan the Activities Fair and other recruiting events with the Managing Editor and supervise HNLR’s continued outreach and staff recruitment throughout the year. Since a two-minute conversation can clinch or flip a 1L’s decision to join HNLR or go somewhere else, we’re looking for a people-person. This position will be a lot of fun, as you’ll be planning the recruiting events for new students and helping foster tighter bonds among current membership. We would love to have someone help us spread the news about HNLR’s friendly culture.
Other Ways To Get Involved

- Symposium Committee Member: Assist Symposium Chairs with various tasks in preparing for our annual symposium, including promotion and planning events with panelists.

Virtual Fall Subcite – sign up here!
On Saturday, October 10th, HNLR will be hosting its virtual subcite for the fall edition of HNLR Vol. 26! You’ll be part of a team working on one of our fall articles to make sure the footnotes are accurate and all the author’s arguments are supported by the sources cited. No journal experience or prep work necessary, and 1Ls are especially encouraged to sign up. Just show up (virtually), get your editing assignment from your executive editor (who will make the process totally easy), and have fun! Well, as much fun as Bluebooking can be… 🙂 You’ll make some new friends (nothing bonds people like the Oxford comma), get a nice line on your resume, and leave a part of the HNLR community. Oh – and ~free swag~ for everyone who completes their assignment!
Can’t participate synchronously? No worries. We’ll work with you to complete your assignment during that week and get you on the masthead.
