Executive Committee

Beginning with Volume 47, the Journal adopted a more stringent admissions process where only editors would be admitted directly to its Board of Editors, thereby replacing staff members, while continuing to provide an opportunity for students to harness their legal writing and research skills beyond the demands of classroom routine. Under this new policy, the Journal ceased to be headed by an Editor-in-Chief; instead, an Executive Committee composed of three individuals was established to lead the Board of Editors. These three editors shall be ultimately responsible for the publication of the four issues of the Journal.
