Requirements

All reviewers must be active members of the Education Law Association and sign the Leadership Code of Ethics.

Double-Masked Peer Review

Proposals submitted to the Education Law Association go through a double-masked peer-review process. This means applicants do not know the identity of the reviewers, and the reviewers do not know the applicant’s identity. The proposal portal does not permit any reviewer to review their own application.

Reviewers as Meaning Makers

Leaders of the Education Law Association work hard to create a warm, hospitable, and professional culture. When offering review comments, please use constructive and collegial language to inspire intellectual self-worth and professional development and motivate applicants to reach their full potential. We are intentional communicators. We are committed to creating a counterculture in a world that awards people for using demeaning language by making meaning with one another. Use the review comments as a teachable moment by lifting one another to higher ground. Your identity in this review process will remain anonymous, but remember your character is the applicant’s greatest teacher.
