Tips for Managing and Executive Editors
The National Conference of Law Reviews is an organization of law reviews in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico devoted to helping its members better serve both the academic and legal communities. At its annual spring conference, law review editors from member publications meet each year to exchange ideas on issues common to student-edited law journals.
In a panel titled “Tips for Managing and Executive Editors,” Isai Molina, former managing editor of Oklahoma City University Law Review, shares tips for managing journal finances and keeping candidates and staff motivated through a long year of editing and writing. The discussion includes tips for financial management, how to handle disciplinary actions, and generally keeping everything on track. Joining him on the panel are Rebecca Aitchison, assistant public defender with the Rhode Island Public Defender’s Office, and Amber Michlig, managing editor of the Northern Illinois University Law Review.
