The Law Review’s New Member Orientation will commence at 5 pm tonight (August 26) in room 520. This meeting is mandatory for all new members; of course, any EAEs, NCEs, or SAs that are able are welcome and encouraged to show up. We expect the orientation to last about thirty minutes.
If you’re a new Chicago-Kent Law Review member, welcome.
Please take a look at the material on our staff writing program page. From these documents you’ll get a pretty good idea how the program works and when is expected of you. It will also serve as a background for the disucssion in your first Legal Writing IV Equivalency class.
ATTENTION all new (and old) members of Law Review! Executive Article Editor Rue Toland and Notes and Comments Editor Mike Gustafson will be holding an OCI Info Session this Thursday at Kent where they’ll share insights and tips about the interview process. Mike just finished his summer program at Sidley Austin, while Rue participated in the summer program at Mayer Brown. Topics of discussion include the interview process itself and what to expect (on-campus and call-backs); how summer associate programs are run; and the etiquette of the interviews, lunches, and follow-up contact.
Please come and bring your questions – no question is too silly or too small.

To those of you who submitted a Summer Candidacy paper – thanks, and congrats on finishing a mighty task! The Law Review Executive Board has already been hard at work reviewing the papers. We’ve got a good-sized stack to go through and we’re going to be working on them for a couple of weeks.
Our self-imposed goal is to inform those of you who will be invited to join the Law Review by about Sunday, August 9th. This is, of course, subject to change, so check back here for any updates to this date.
To maintain your anonymity, please do not contact any members of the Executive Board. We’ll keep you updated right here.
You were probably inside too much writing these papers, so the Executive Board asks you politely to get yourselves some sunshine and fresh air.
Thanks and Good Luck!
Your submissions must be emailed to Alex Magalli (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than 6:00 p.m. Sunday, July 19, 2009. Your completed paper must be in Word format and emailed as an attachment. Alex will email back confirming receipt of your paper and that he can open the file.
Additionally, please ensure that your submission conforms to the requirements (paper length, margins, font, etc.) listed in the Instructions.
Our Editor in Chief, David Freedman, has just released the 2009-2010 cite checking and EAE materials. This includes updated cite checking and EAE manuals, as well as a new source locating and ordering spreadsheet.
