Positions Open with the AABANY Law Review

AABANY Law Review

The AABANY Law Review (ALR) is an annual journal published by attorneys and law students that seeks to inspire discussion and debate on matters of concern to the Asian Pacific American community while providing law students with valuable journal experience. ALR published its inaugural issue in February 2012. More recently, ALR published a special edition containing annotated re-enactment scripts of historic cases involving Asian Americans written by prominent members of the Asian American legal community.

ALR is currently seeking practitioners, law students, and graduates who are interested in contributing to the journal for the upcoming year. We are aiming to publish our second issue in September 2013, which will contain a mix of original content and republications. ALR also has plans to launch its First Annual Student Note competition in early 2013. ALR will provide opportunities for its members to develop and hone their own research, writing, and editing skills.
