Recruitment 2018/2019

We have officially opened recruitment for all boards on the MJLH. We invite students from all years of the McGill Faculty of Law to send your applications to any of our four executive boards: Editorial, Online, Management and Strategic Planning & Solicitations.

Notez bien que le comité de rédaction est bilingue et les rédacteurs / rédactrices travaillent avec les articles en anglais ainsi que le français. Vous avez donc l’option de soumettre une application pour le comité anglais ainsi que le comité français.

Applications for all Boards will remain open until Friday, September 14th at 11:59PM. Executives for each board will hold interviews thereafter. Application instructions can be found below.

Editorial Board:

Members of the Editorial Board work directly with the academic articles submitted to the Journal. They review submissions and provide recommendations as to whether an article would be suitable for publication. Editors on this Board also have the opportunity to hone their research and editing skills by verifying sources, checking footnotes, and revising texts.

Les membres du comité de rédaction participent à l’évaluation et la révision d’articles portant sur divers sujets, incluant les questions éthiques entourant les soins en fin de vie, la réglementation de l’édition génétique, et bien d’autres encore. L’année dernière, le comité de rédaction a révisé des manuscrits rédigés par des spécialistes réputés, tels Shauna Van Praagh et Michael Ralph Hadskis, sur des thèmes d’actualités et controversés comme la prise de décisions médicales pour les enfants dans le contexte des communautés autochtones et le privilège thérapeutique accordé aux médecins.

The Editorial Board is seeking detail oriented editors with time-management skills and an ability to critically analyze texts. Editors should have a strong interest in legal scholarship and be enthusiastic about collaborating with a community of law students and scholars.

Please download and complete the following application form and instructions, along with either an English or French article that you will use to complete the assignment. Please send your completed application form, assignment, CV, and cover letter to editor.mjlh@mail.mcgill.ca (English) or redacteur.rdsm@mail.mcgill.ca [Français].

Online Board: 

The primary responsibility of the Online Board is the MJLH online articles, which allows online editors to make contributions and provides readers with the opportunity to remain informed of burgeoning issues at the intersection of health, science and law.

Les étudiants auront l’occasion de s’exprimer sur des sujets d’actualité et d’échanger des idées par rapport à la santé, la science et le droit. De plus, les rédacteurs en ligne effectuent des recherches et analyses de l’actualité juridique et législative en vue de rédiger des commentaires, des résumés de cas et des chroniques publiées sur le site Web.

Recent articles discuss topics such as data privacy legislation and the implications of brain-machine interfaces, legal barriers to compensating psychological injuries suffered by public safety personnel, and an analysis of various compensation methods for the health impacts of climate change.

In addition, the editors will be responsible for maintaining MJLH’s other social media
accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn). The Board will also participate in the annual
MJLH Colloquium through “live-tweeting,” promotion, etc.

The Online Board seeks candidates who are hard-working and possess strong writing and research abilities.

Please fill out the following application form and send it, along with your CV and a cover letter, to: web.mjlh@mail.mcgill.ca.

Note: Please keep in mind that you do not need to be on the Online Board to submit online articles. We solicit content for the Online blog from all law students and professors in the legal community at McGill and beyond.

Management Board:

Being a part of the Management Board offers students several exciting opportunities, including being a part of the annual Colloquium organizing committee, developing Speaker Series events, and supporting the Editorial Board’s initiatives. Last year, the Management Board organized events on the legal and ethical debates surrounding artificial intelligence and the future of health care, stem cell research, and doping in sports.

Le travail des membres de ce comité consistera également à assurer le succès financier de la Revue, ainsi qu’à promouvoir la Revue à travers des activités sur le campus et dans la communauté. Le temps investi varie au cours de l’année, mais n’est habituellement pas plus que 3 à 4 heures par semaine.

The Management Board is seeking enthusiastic candidates with an interest in event planning and working in a team environment who possess strong organizational and time-management skills. Experience in writing funding applications and/or other fundraising experience is an asset.

Please download and complete the following application form and send the completed form along with your CV and a cover letter to manager.mjlh@mail.mcgill.ca.

Strategic Planning & Solicitations Board:

Cognizant of the international reputation of the MJLH, the Strategic Planning and Solicitation (SPAS) Board will have the growth and management of readership and submission as its primary focus. Members of this Board will actively serve as the face of the journal by soliciting authors, scouting peer reviewers from the academic community, and by networking within the law and health community at large.

Over the past year, the Board attended various speaker events hosted by the Faculty of Law and the Institute of Health and Social Policy as official representatives of the MJLH. Nous avons également travaillé à élargir le côté francophone de la RDSM. Par exemple, en traduisant les documents utilisés pour la révision par les pairs. Un projet pour l’année 2018-2019 est l’élaboration d’un Podcast afin de viser différents publics cibles.

Le comité recherche des candidats ayant des compétences fortes en organisation, avec un intérêt marqué pour la stratégie et la communication.

Please download and complete the following application form and send the completed form along with your CV and a cover letter to info.mjlh@mcgill.ca.

Applications for all Boards  will remain open until Friday, September 14th at 11:59pm.

Update: Applications for the French Editorial Board will remain open until September 23rd at 8:00pm. 

Vous pouvez soumettre votre application en français ou en anglais.
