OSEBLJ Staff Editor Orientation

Membership & Writing Competition

Membership to the EBLJ offers students an excellent opportunity to develop research, writing, and editing skills and to publish their own student scholarly works.

Each year EBLJ invites qualified and motivated first and second year students to join the staff of EBLJ through the Journal’s annual writing competition. The invitation to join EBLJ is based on the quality of the student’s application materials, primarily the strength of the writing submission. To apply to EBLJ, a student must attend the annual writing competition meeting held each Spring and submit the following application materials:

  • Application to the EBLJ
  • Writing Submission (not to exceed 10 pages)
  • Editing Assignment
  • Statement of Interest
  • Resume

Applicants should refer to the Official Rules for particular guidelines. The writing competition is governed by the Honor Code.

There are no particular GPA or grade requirements for membership to EBLJ. However, all first-year students who receive a final grade of “A” in Contracts will automatically receive an offer of membership to EBLJ, so long as they submit a grade release form and contact information.

Invitations to join EBLJ will be sent directly to candidates during the month of July. Orientation for new members is held prior to the start of the law school year.

Any questions regarding the writing competition may be directed to EBLJ
