The Journal of Corporation Law welcomes and enjoys the submission of manuscripts by practitioners and scholars. Publishing a manuscript in the Journal is very competitive. Each year the Journal receives hundreds of submissions from top practitioners and scholars who are leaders in their fields.
In selecting manuscripts for publication, the Journal considers a number of factors with an emphasis on manuscripts that address timely subjects and contain strong conclusions. Submissions are evaluated separately. Although the student staff may consult their faculty advisors for recommendations, the decision to publish a manuscript is vested solely in the student editorial staff.
Manuscripts submitted to the Journal must be typed and conform to the following conventions: the body of the manuscript must conform to The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style (2d ed. 2006), and the manuscript must contain footnotes (as opposed to endnotes or a bibliography) that conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (Columbia Law Review Ass’n et al. eds, 19th ed. 2010). The Journal requests that manuscripts be double-spaced with one inch margins and footnotes.
However, authors may submit hard copies of manuscripts directly to the Journal by mailing the manuscript to our editorial offices.
The Journal of Corporation Law does not accept submissions from students other than the Notes submitted by our current student writers. Authors with specific questions regarding submissions should contact our editorial office.
