Membership in the Howard Human & Civil Rights Law Review is limited to second- and third-year law students who are selected after an annual writing competition upon completion of their 1L Year. The Law Review strongly encourages all students to participate in the writing competition. Howard University School of Law students who are interested in joining the Law Review must be in the top 30% of the 1L class and participate in the competition at the end of their first year.
Ten to Twelve editors are invited to join the Law Review each year. Editors are selected based solely on their competition scores and first year grades. Editors are selected through a holistic but anonymous review that takes into account all available information.
The Law Review expects to invite editors to join Volume V over the course of several days during the month of June 2019. This timeline is subject to change and any updates will be posted to this website when available. Orientation for new editors will begin on Monday, August 1.
