Applications are now open for EDITORS

Our Editors ensure that the PILJNZ continues to meet its high editorial standards. The editorial board is broadly divided into two roles: senior editors and sub-editors.

Senior editing is divided into:

(a) Style and argument; and 

(b) Research and citations. 

Sub-editing is divided into:

(a) Research; and

(b) Citations.

No prior editing experience is required and both senior and junior students are encouraged to apply. Editors working on other law journals are also encouraged to apply.

To apply to be an EDITOR, please email the following to

  • A completed Application Form
  • Your edit of this extract, which you need to edit for writing style and to comply with the New Zealand Law Style Guide
  • Your unofficial academic transcript

Please use the subject line:  “Editor Application [your name]”. 

Once we have received your expression of interest, we will send you an excerpt of legal writing for you to edit and return to us.

Applications for editorial positions are due by Friday 3 May 2019 at 5pm. If you have any questions, please get in touch with the Editors-in-Chief at the email address above.

We look forward to receiving your application soon.
