Call for Applications – Assistant Editors, ILA Reporter

The ILA Reporter is calling for applications for Assistant Editors. These Assistant Editors will work in collaboration with the current Assistant Editors and Editor-in-Chief of the ILA Reporter.

Applications are due on 3 July 2020.

What is the ILA Reporter?

The ILA Reporter is the official blog of the Australian Branch of the International Law Association (ILA). The ILA was founded in Brussels in 1873. It has consultative status, as an international non-governmental organisation, with a number of the United Nations specialised agencies. The ILA Reporter provides analysis, commentary and discussion on issues in public and private international law which have bearing on Australia and the wider region, as well as publicising relevant events and opportunities for education to its audience.

What is the role?

The role of the Assistant Editors is to support the Editor-in-Chief by commissioning, editing and publishing articles for the Blog. Assistant Editors are engaged on a voluntary basis and are required to source and edit at least one article per month. There are also opportunities for Assistant Editors to have their own articles published on the blog.

The role is a great opportunity for those looking to gain experience in the field of international law with a well-respected non-government organisation. The ILA Reporter is looking to recruit two or three Assistant Editors in this round of positions.

Are you a suitable candidate?

Candidates will ideally be in their penultimate or final year of an undergraduate law degree; undertaking an LLM or PhD in an international law-related field; or work in an international law-related field.

The candidate must be able to explain their knowledge and interest in international law, which may be through studying international law courses during their degree, volunteer or pro bono work with an organisation connected with international law and/or research on international law-related topics. 

Strong written communication and legal research skills are essential.

How do you apply?

Please send a copy of your CV, a short statement of motivation (less than 250 words) and an example of a written work of at least 1,000 words to the Editor-in-Chief of the ILA Reporter at [email protected] by 6:00 PM AEST on 3 July 2020.

Please feel free to send any questions about the positions to the above address.
