Spring 2013 Article Submissions Procedures

The N.Y.U. Law Review will begin accepting submissions on Wednesday, February 13, 2013. We will only accept submissions through Scholastica. We will no longer accept submissions 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 can 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. Additional information about the Law Review’s submission procedures is available here.

Reisch Recognized by Third Circuit

Nikki Reisch (Articles Editor ‘12) was lauded for her “exceptional oral advocacy” by Chief Judge McKee of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit at FN 29 in Oliva-Ramos v. Att’y Gen., 2012 WL 4017478 (3d Cir. Sept. 13, 2012). Ms. Reisch and Stephen Kang (Notes Editor ’11) represented the petitioner pro bono as part of the Immigrant Rights Clinic, seeking to have his removal order vacated and the case remanded. The court granted the petition, vacated the removal order, and held that the exclusionary rule may apply in removal proceedings where an alien shows egregious violations of the Fourth Amendment that might transgress notions of fundamental fairness and undermine the probative value of the evidence obtained. We congratulate them on their victory.
