Sep. 02: Just Security Student Staff Editor Program

Posted on

Just Security:

Just Security is a prominent national security blog that publishes thought-provoking and informative pieces on topical issues. They publish articles by experts, academics, civil society practitioners, individuals directly affected by national security policies, and other leading voices. The Board of Editors includes a broad range of leading experts on domestic and international law and policy, and the management team is led by NYU Law Professor Ryan Goodman and Reiss Center Senior Fellow Tess Bridgeman.


The Just Security Student Staff Editor Program is an opportunity to get involved in high-quality and impactful work. Those who are accepted will be joining the Just Security Masthead as Student Staff Editors (SSEs).

SSEs support the Just Security team by doing one or more of:

  • conducting research and developing other projects or pieces for the site
  • writing and publishing their own original pieces
  • curating and editing incoming pieces
  • assisting with other timely projects.

Each semester, SSEs are expected to attend an all-staff meeting, contribute to the creation of one original piece on the site, and participate in editorial tasks periodically during the semester (e.g., reviewing submissions or supporting the Just Security Early Edition).


All current NYU Law students are welcome to apply! All you need is an interest in national security issues (broadly defined, including the ways that national security intersects with other areas of domestic and international law), a strong work ethic, and good writing skills!


Please fill out the application here by Friday, September 2 at 11:59pm.
