Queen's Law students can apply to be volunteer students editors with the CJCA during the academic year. Volunteer positions will be flexible and dynamic - students will gain experience proofreading and preparing submissions for publication, writing blogs, and assisting the Editorial team in other tasks. Applicants will be chosen based on a successful completion of an editing assignment and related prior experience.
- A cover letter addressed to the Co-Editors-in-Chief that sets out:
- Your interest in the journal in general
- The position you are interested in (either a senior student editor or student editor position, or both)
- Any particular areas of CJCA in which in you are interested (such as submissions/peer review, articles editing, managing the website, or managing volunteers)
- A resumé highlighting any relevant experience;
- A transcript (unofficial PDF of your Queen’s Law transcript is sufficient); and
- A writing sample. This need not be on a legal topic; the purpose is more to gauge your writing style and attention to detail than your knowledge of any particular content.
Depending on the level of interest, interviews may be conducted (online or by phone).
