Publishing With ILR
Note: The Iowa Law Review is now accepting submissions for Volume 100. We will begin reviewing submissions in late February 2014. Please check back again for updates or continue reading for additional information.
The Iowa Law Review is recognized as an excellent source of legal scholarship. The Iowa Law Review has been cited over 29,000 times on HeinOnline, ranking it among the twenty most-often-cited journals. A study by Washington & Lee University also ranks the Iowa Law Review as the 17th most influential law journal based on recent citations in journals and cases. The Law Review is committed to maintaining our historical reputation and continuing our recent success by selecting quality legal scholarship. We invite you to join in our success by submitting your article for publication.
The Iowa Law Review does not have a maximum word count or page limit, although the length of the manuscript may be a factor we consider in the selection process. We are happy to review full-length articles as well as slightly shorter essays. The Law Review does not typically publish book reviews or review submissions by students other than Law Review student writers.
The Iowa Law Review invites submission of unsolicited manuscripts through Scholastica. We do not accept submissions by email. If you submit your article through Scholastica, we also encourage you to use Scholastica to update us regarding pending offers and expedite requests.

- Manuscripts should be submitted in Microsoft Word format.
