Prospective Members

As an independent publication, the CLR editorial board has the discretion of selecting the best and brightest talent from varied legal institutions across the nation.  Currently, the board is comprised of JD and LLM candidates from legal institutions including, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Columbia Law School, Fordham Law School, George Washington University Law School, and New York University Law School, who were selected after a competitive and rigorous screening process.  CLR does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.

As we look forward to the next generation of this publication, we are seeking qualified law students who are interested in comparative law to apply for positions on our staff. Responsibilities will mainly include editing and bluebooking of articles and notes selected for publication in the coming issue. A proficiency or interest in Jewish Law is recommended, as many articles and notes include Jewish Law sources and topics.

One way in which our Journal is unique, is that it provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable Journal experience without the commitment of scheduled office hours. Assignments are only given out as they arise, with reasonably set deadlines for their completion.  Each staff position will require some work and dedication, but it will not be overwhelming. Additionally, we do not require each student to write their own notes, although all appropriate student note submissions are welcome for publication consideration.

To apply for positions, please send an email to with your application.

The application should include:
1) a copy of your resume;
2) a ranking of the top three positions you would like to be considered for (for a list of available positions please refer to the
current Masthead; and
3) a brief statement about yourself and why you are interested in our Journal.

Looking forward to working together,
