Membership in any student-edited legal journal is a privilege and honor, and membership in JESL is no exception. Members are selected from the students at the University of Missouri School of Law. Applicants submit a writing sample and footnote checking assignment as a part of the journal write-on competition following the spring of their 1L year. JESL selects only individuals it feels will substantially contribute in producing a quality academic journal.

Any students with questions about membership in JESL can contact the JESL board by visiting the JESL contact page.
