The Voting Rights and Democracy Forum seeks dedicated 2L, 2LE, 3L, 3LE, and 4LE students at Fordham Law School to join the Volume II staff for the 2023-24 academic year. Students who join our staff will gain editorial experience and have the opportunity to write and submit their own pieces for publication. They will also join a community of scholars committed to amplifying issues central to our democracy.
As a new student-run publication at Fordham Law, the Forum is not currently part of the Unified Writing Competition. To enable us to produce high-quality scholarship, the Forum selects staff members through an independent competitive process designed to recruit dedicated, talented students from a diversity of backgrounds with a demonstrated interest in the Forum‘s specialty areas of focus.
