Staff and editor selection
CJIL is one of the three student-edited law journals published at the University of Chicago Law School. University of Chicago law students are selected to join CJIL as staff members each year by that year's incoming managing board of editors through a blind writing competition held after the participants' first year of law school. CJIL also allows law students to "write on" to the journal to become staff members by submitting a publishable piece of legal scholarship. The outgoing managing board selects the next year's editors each spring, generally from among the current staff.
