Role of Student Editors

The Year Book 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 36, most of the student editing will occur from September 2018 to March 2019. The role can be performed remotely if necessary. Students generally remain in the role for at least two volumes.


Applications for Student Editors for Volume 36 have now closed.

Your application should consist of a:

  • Statement of interest (250 words)
  • Academic transcript/statement of results
  • Completed editing task

Student Editors should have completed, or be completing LAWS2250 (International Law).

Please send your completed application to
