Law Journals

Students have the opportunity to participate, for credit, in the operation of some of the student-run, peer-reviewed journals at the Faculty.

Working for a journal is an invaluable complement to a student’s legal education. The experience allows law students to be exposed to legal scholarship of the highest caliber and to interact with some of the keenest legal minds in the country and around the world, while obtaining academic credit.

Opportunities run the gamut from Junior Editor to Editor-in-Chief, with credits ranging from 2 to 6. Each year, the journals post calls for applications for the different positions that need to be filled. The selection process is competitive and involves both an application package and an interview.

Currently, the program covers the McGill Law Journal (MLJ), the McGill Journal of Sustainable Development Law (MJSDL), the McGill Journal of Law and Health (MJLH), and the McGill Journal of Dispute Resolution (MJDR).
