The Publications Fellow will work under the direct supervision of ASIL's Attorney-Editor in the Publications Department. The Fellow will have the opportunity to publish in International Legal Materials and ASIL Insights on topics of his or her interest in international law. The Fellow will also be responsible for researching current developments in international law in order to contribute to the International Law in Brief blog. The Publications Fellow will have the opportunity to develop his or her international legal research, writing, and editing skills in providing editorial support for the above mentioned publications, as well as the American Journal of International Law and, occasionally, to provide general support for the ASIL Programs Department. Specific assignments will be decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the strengths and interests of the Fellow and the needs of the Publications Department.
Successful applicants will have obtained a graduate degree in law (J.D. or LL.M.) prior to the start of the fellowship, evidence strong writing and editorial skills, show experience working in a professional environment and on program implementation, and have a demonstrated interest in international law. Familiarity with the Bluebook is required and experience working on a journal is a plus. Coursework or work experience in international law is strongly preferred. Fellow positions require the ability, initiative, and judgment to work independently.
Applicants should send a cover letter, resume, and an unedited writing sample (preferably a research paper using Bluebook citation) to firstname.lastname@example.org, with "Publications Fellow" in the subject line. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants should be sure to include their desired start date in their application materials.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled, so applicants are encouraged to apply early.
