Please consider submitting your work to our Journal for consideration. We publish student notes and articles by academics and practitioners. In addition, we also invite authors to submit shorter works, such as book reviews, commentaries, essays, notes, comments, and biographies. All submissions are reviewed throughout the year on a rolling basis. The Journal seeks to provide authors with timely responses; however, the Journal will sometimes hold articles for consideration in a future publication unless the Journal is notified of a withdrawal. We also look to substantive factors: the scholarly value of the submission, the topic’s relation to civil liberties and civil rights, and the novelty of the legal arguments or discussion. Importantly, however, we do not veto submissions based on political leanings or personal beliefs of the editing board.

Please send submissions, accompanied by a curriculum vitae and a cover letter, to the Journal via ExpressO, Scholastica, or by e-mail to
