LR elections are during 2L spring. 2L members can put in for as many board positions as they want, in priority order. Applicants fill paper applications and can take advantage of a peer recommendation process by which they can endorse fellow 2Ls for certain positions (or receive such endorsements). The sitting LR board, in full, conducts in-person interviews of each candidate (so ~20 board members sit in a room together and interview 1 applicant at a time -- intimidating!), and then has a super-long closed-door meeting in which they elect the new board. If someone does not get their first choice, the board considers them for every other position they have applied for. Some years, applicants for the board outnumber board positions by a lot; other years, by only one or two people.
Getting EIC is really hard. Several of the other positions are as well (e.g., EAE), but others definitely are not (e.g., Membership Editor).
Thanks dude, that makes a lot of sense.
