NLG Review is Looking for New Board Members and Editors

The NLGR is NLG’s intellectual journal which aims to publish timely, insightful articles and respond to the interests and needs of the progressive legal and activist communities. We are currently looking to expand the editorial board and have openings for the following volunteer positions:

  • Managing Editor: The managing editor will work closely with the executive editor to keep track of accepted and rejected submissions, and keep tabs on various internal deadlines after the executive editor makes editing assignments. The ideal managing editor will have strong organizational skills, be available to regularly check and respond to emails, and work collaboratively with the editor in chief and executive editors to keep track of article submissions.
  • Contributing Editors: Contributing editors will be responsible for preliminary review of submissions, making recommendations on whether to accept articles for publication, and editing accepted articles prior to their publication. We ask that contributing editors be able to commit to editing one to two articles per year.

This could be an excellent opportunity for academics, practitioners, and/or law students. If you are interested in any of the listed positions please contact Dalia Fuleihan at

Please include a resume and a brief statement of interest which describes your prior writing/editing experience if any.
