All Harvard Law School students including 1Ls, transfer students, and LL.M. candidates are permitted to be members of the Harvard Environmental Law Review.
1Ls are encouraged to become subciters. Subciting involves verifying the substantive accuracy and correct formatting of an article’s citations. Subcites typically occur on three days during the fall semester and three days during the spring semester.
1Ls may also become more involved in the Review 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 Technical Editors, assisting in bringing an article through the editing process.
Along with continuing to subcite and serve as technical editors, upper-level and LL.M. students may participate as Article Editors, managing the process of publishing an article from start to finish and engaging directly with the other.
Upper-level students may also apply to serve as a Managing Editor on the executive board of the Review. Applications are typically reviewed by the Editors-in-Chief shortly after their election in the spring.
