The N.Y.U. Law Review has a strong preference for accepting pieces under 35,000 words including text and footnotes. We believe that the vast majority of law review articles can convey their arguments effectively in 40-70 journal pages (between 20,000 and 35,000 words including text and footnotes). We encourage authors to target the lengths of their submissions to this range. Citations should conform to the Nineteenth Edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.
We are excited to announce that we will be transitioning to a new article submission service. The Law Review will begin accepting submissions through Scholastica on Wednesday, February 13, 2013. We will only accept submissions through Scholastica. We will no longer accept submission through ExpressO, and we do not accept submissions by email.
Institutions can create accounts to pay for their authors' submissions to Scholastica, so authors affiliated with law schools will have the same payment experience they have had on ExpressO. Scholastica is committed to ensuring that authors are able to submit articles regardless of institutional support and will consider requests for fee waivers and other accommodations at this email address. Additional information about Scholastica is available at their site.
If you must submit a hard copy, please mail your submission to:
Senior Articles Editor
New York University Law Review
110 West Third Street
New York, NY 10012-1003
When requesting expedited reviews of previously submitted articles, please do so via Scholastica. If you are unable to use Scholastica, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org with information about the expedite request. Please include the words “Request for Expedited Review” in the subject line of the email.
Submissions to the N.Y.U. Law Review Online should be sent to email@example.com. Submissions should not exceed 4,000 words, including footnotes. These submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and may include responses, essays, comments, and any other original legal scholarship. Submissions should conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation and should appear in Microsoft Word format.
