Greetings from the Harvard Journal on Legislation! Our names are Paul Kominers and George Maliha, and we are the Co-Presidents and Editors-in-Chief of the Journal. We are writing to welcome you to campus and encourage you to get involved with JOL.
As the nation’s premier law review focused on legislative analysis and the legislative process, we have a unique role in shaping public policy. Not only do we publish articles written by law professors and students, we also regularly publish essays by members of Congress and other government officials, which are often reported on by the nation’s top newspapers. As the only nonpartisan policy journal on campus, we are open to all points of view and opinion.
JOL is the third-oldest journal at Harvard Law School. Despite our long history, we seek to innovate in the field of legal academia by promoting shorter, more accessible policy analysis essays written by students, and experimenting with peer-review systems for articles. From your first day with JOL, you can also get involved with one of our committees, which allow you to help select articles for publication and work on online pieces.
On the social side, we have an executive office suite on the 2nd floor of the WCC, an open door policy, and regular happy hours. If you would like to get involved or have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Look forward to meeting you!
