Call for Reporters: Oxford Reports on International Law

Oxford University Press, Professor Lorna McGregor, and Stella Margariti are looking for reporters to help update and maintain coverage of European Court of Human Rights decisions in our Oxford Reports on International Law: International Human Rights module.

Reporters are asked to write headnotes (which are published online) for judgments identified by the editors as particularly relevant or important for the development of international law, particularly the interpretation of the European Convention on Human Rights and the development of the Court’s jurisprudence. The headnote will follow a template, including basic information, background and analysis, and should not, in principle, exceed 1000 words. Reporters will be paid £35 (or £70 worth of OUP books) for each accepted headnote, will be named in the document as the author and will also be given temporary free access to the ORIL databases.

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 masters in international law or be in the process of studying for one; or have equivalent experience
  • Good legal writing and analysis skills
  • A high standard of English
  • Demonstrated knowledge of the ECHR and ECtHR case law would be an asset

Applications should include:

  • a CV
  • a short statement highlighting the applicant’s experience

Applications should be addressed to Dr Margariti and sent to ecthr.editors@gmail.com.
