Executive Editor

The Executive Editor is responsible for production at the Law Review. The Executive Editor coordinates production work assignments, organizes footnote checks, prepares issues for publication, and is responsible for layout and publishing.

Editorial Managers

Editorial Managers liaise with authors, Articles Editors, and the Senior Board, and handle correspondence and general administrative work. One of the most important responsibilities of Editorial Managers is to maintain the anonymity of the editorial process by shielding the identity of submitting authors from all editors. Editorial Managers may also assist with production as required.

Outreach Manager for Submissions

The Outreach Manager for Submissions is responsible for promoting submissions to the Law Review. This will involve running the call for submissions at the Faculty and devising and implementing outreach strategies to encourage submissions from other Canadian law schools. It may also involve outreach to law clerks and law firm summer classes.

Outreach Manager for Subscriptions

The Outreach Manager for Subscriptions is responsible for maintaining and expanding the Law Review’s subscriber base. This will involve communication with current and former subscribers. It will also involve developing a strategy to increase the number of subscribers and conducting outreach to those subscribers.

Business and Development Managers

Business and Development Managers manage the Law Review’s finances and accounts. They are also responsible for outreach to potential advertisers.

Senior Editors

The Senior Editors are responsible for selecting which papers to publish in the Law Review. Senior Editors (with the exception of the Notes, Comments, and Reviews Senior Editor) also mentor a specific Cell Group. Senior Editors also work directly with authors to revise papers for publication, and supervise the production editing of papers.

Articles Editors

Within the Cell Groups, Articles Editors are responsible for training editors, acting as a resource to Assistant Editors as they undertake carriage of papers, and leading discussions regarding submitted papers. When leading discussions, Articles Editors ensure all papers receive a thorough and fair review, which includes both defending papers that are poorly received and critiquing papers that are well received. Further, Articles Editors are responsible for aiding Carriage Groups in preparing the Senior Board presentation and memo for those papers that are passed up. Articles Editors may work with authors, Senior Editors, and the Executive Editor to revise papers for publication. To ensure a complete editorial record, Articles Editors are responsible for collecting from Assistant Editors all comment and carriage forms.

Senior Associate Editors

Senior Associate Editors are third year and graduate students, and are responsible for conducting substantive review of papers passed up to the Senior Board in advance of the Senior Board’s meeting to discuss the merits of each submission. They are not required to perform carriage research. Senior Associate Editors may also assist in the revision of papers provisionally accepted for publication.

Associate Editors

Associate Editors are second year and graduate students. They perform the same tasks as Assistant Editors, but may take on additional responsibilities (e.g., mentorship of Assistant Editors and provision of substantive comments on passed up papers) in accordance with their greater editorial and/or academic experience.
