How to Join

Join Us!

All upperclassmen, including rising 2L/2Es, 3L/3Es, 4Es, and LLMs, are invited to join GLTR. Beyond access and exposure to the most cutting-edge legal research, staff members as early as 2Ls have opportunities to take on leadership opportunities as Assistant Editors. Because GLTR publishes Legal Impressions and Tech Explainers, staff members also have the opportunity to publish as early as the first semester they join. No technical background is necessary.

To: Returning Georgetown Students

To join GLTR, first-year law students participate in a Write On process run separately from Georgetown’s Office of Journal Administration. For 2023-2024, the Write On will take place between May 26th and June 8th of 2023.

To: Transfer and LLM Students

GLTR also invites transfer and LLM students new to Georgetown the opportunity to become a staff member of the journal. The Write On for these students, which is substantively the same as that for returning Georgetown students, will take place later in the summer. For 2023-2024, the Transfer and LLM Write On will take place between August 6th and August 19th of 2023.
