All Harvard Law School students including 1Ls, transfer students, and LLM candidates are permitted to be a member of the Harvard Environmental Law Review.

First-year students who are interested in the publication side of the journal are encouraged to become subciters. Subciting involves verifying the accuracy, both substantively and technically, of an article’s citations, and ensuring they are in correct Bluebook format. Subcites typically occur on two days during the fall semester and two days during the spring semester.

First-year students may also become more involved in HELR through a variety of other positions. These opportunities include:

  • Becoming a Submissions Reader and taking part in the process of reviewing and selecting articles for the print edition; and
  • Serving as Line Editors, through which one assists in bringing an article through the editing process.
