Call for Reporters: ORIL International Criminal Law
Source:Oxford Public International Law
Oxford University Press, Professor William Schabas, Professor Göran Sluiter, Belinda Macmahon and Stella Margariti are looking for reporters to help update and maintain coverage of the jurisprudence of international criminal courts and tribunals in our Oxford Reports on International Law: International Criminal Law (ICL) module.
Reporters are asked to write headnotes for judgments and procedural decisions identified by the editors. This will include judicial decisions such as trial or appeal judgments or any other decision concerning a critical issue of international criminal law.
The headnote will follow a template, including basic information, procedural background and the parties’ arguments (with a word limit of 750 words), the court’s holdings (up to 1000 words), and the reporter’s analysis, which is a critical review of the decision, and which should not, in principle, exceed 1000 words. Reporters will be paid £35 (or £70 worth of OUP books) for each accepted headnote and will be named in the document as the author.
It is a great opportunity to be a part of OUP’s successful case law reporting service and to add to your portfolio of publications.
Reporters should possess:
– A master’s degree in international law or higher; or have equivalent experience
– Good legal writing and analytical skills
– A high standard of written English
– Demonstrated knowledge of international criminal law would be an asset
Applications should include:
– a CV
– a short statement highlighting the applicant’s experience, knowledge of international criminal law, and interest in contributing to the ICL module
