The Harvard Human Rights Journal is currently accepting student submissions for our 26th Volume! HRJ typically publishes three different types of student writing: student notes (10,000-15,000 words, similar to a full journal article), recent developments (2,500-5,000 word commentaries on recent court cases or legislative developments), and book reviews (700-1,000 words; check our office bookshelf in the WCC 3rd floor Journals wing or send us an email!). We are on the search for all three types of pieces.
**Please note a change of policy: we WILL be accepting student submissions from recent graduates of the class of 2012.**
We will accept student writing submissions on a rolling basis until August 10, 2012. HRJ is unique in the diversity of types of pieces it publishes â€“ we cover a vast array of human rights-related topics, so if you have already written a paper for a class that is related to human rights in any way, send it our way. Of course, we also enthusiastically welcome any piece you’d like to start from scratch!
Please send your submissions to the Student Writing Editors, Madison Condon ( mcondon at jd13.law.harvard.edu) and Connie Sung ( csung at jd14.law.harvard.edu), who are also available to answer questions and work with you throughout the writing process. We look forward to hearing from you!
