Student Editors

Student Editorial Board

The AYBIL offers ANU students the opportunity to be involved in producing Australia’s longest standing international law publication and gain valuable experience in high-level academic writing in international law.

Student editors proofread articles, check footnotes, verify all citations and edit articles to ensure compliance with the Australian Guide to Legal Citation.

Each student editor is acknowledged in print, and receives a copy of the volume they are involved in. The role is voluntary.

For Volume 34, most of the student editing will occur from December 2016 to March 2017. The role can be performed remotely if necessary. Students generally remain in the role for at least two volumes.
