Law Journals - LAWS533

Under the supervision of the Editor of Macquarie Law Journal, this unit is limited to a very small number of students per semester, who are selected on the basis of their academic results, experience and writing ability. The unit is run in Session 1 each year and invitations to apply for enrolment in LAWS533 are sent to Law students after the conclusion of Session 2 each year (usually in Nov-Dec with applications due in January). Each student completes a range of tasks with respect to the production and publication of the Journal, which include communicating with authors and reviewers, checking articles for accuracy and compliance with style, and editing and proofreading of accepted articles prior to publication. Students are also required to submit two written works to a high standard, typically a case note and a critical review. Classes on editing, research and writing are provided and, when possible, students also participate in a field trip to a legal publishing house.
