Role of Student Editors

The AYBIL is Australia's longest standing and most prestigious dedicated international law publication. The Year Book aims to uniquely combine scholarly commentary with contributions from Australian government officials. 

Student Editors work closely with Academic Editors of the Year Book to edit and produce the journal. This involves proofreading articles, checking footnotes, and verifying all citations 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 (subject to supply). The role is voluntary. 

Applications for Vol 41 

For Volume 41, student editing will occur from February to June 2022. 

The role can be performed remotely if necessary. Students generally remain in the role for at least two publishing cycles.
