About our publication
We encourage authors who are considering submission to the Journal to review our mission statement. The Journal is ranked by The Washington and Lee Law Review in the categories of “Gender, Women and Sexuality” and “Minority, Race and Ethnic Issues.” As such, we seek to publish innovative new scholarship in these areas.
At this time, the Journal will not review unsolicited works by student authors, other than our student members. We typically do not publish book reviews and do not accept non-legal articles.
The Journal typically publishes one volume per academic year, containing three issues. Selection for Volume 16 will begin in Fall 2011.
Please notify the Journal of any requests for expedited review, and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Requests for expedited review should include the author’s name, title of the article, and deadline for response.
In addition to our general acceptance of unsolicited works, the Journal will issue a call for papers to solicit works for our biennial symposium. The call for papers will include a description of the topic and suggested symposium panels. Symposium works are published in the volume following the spring symposium.
Manuscripts should be submitted in the form of a typed and double-spaced Word document. We also ask that manuscripts conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Legal Citation (Columbia L. Rev. Ass’n et al. eds. 19th ed. 2010) and The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style (Bryan A. Garner ed. 2d ed. 2006).
The Journal does not have a page count or word limit, but manuscript length may be a factor in the selection process. Our policy is to publish only original works.
Submission to the Journal’s Blog
The Journal‘s editorial board and student writers maintain an online blog to further our goal of living discussion in legal scholarship. Blog posts are generally 400-800 words in length, cite at least one outside source, and offer a unique viewpoint on a gender, race or justice-related issue. The blog post may comment on a legal issue, but that is not a requirement. If you are interested in contributing to the blog, please email email@example.com.
