Submissions

Policy Overview

We welcome any submissions by graduate or law students, law professors, and legal practitioners. Undergraduate students may submit shorter pieces to DLJ Online, the Journal's blog.

Subject matter can be broad and diverse as long as it pertains to the legal field. We reserve the right to not publish all articles we recieve due to space limitations in each publication. All submissions are subject to editing.

Guidelines for Full Submissions

Law students, professors, and legal practitioners at any institution or firm may submit an article for review. Following completion of a publication contract, the article proceeds through a four-month editorial period and a one-month publication period.

Articles are published both in print and online by the Dartmouth Law Journal, and five copies of print journals will be provided at no charge to each author. Off-prints will be available for order on an individual basis.

Recommended length: 10,000 to 35,000 words, excluding footnotes.

Submission method: The DLJ strongly prefers full submissions via the online submissions service ExpressO. We also accept submissions via the form on the right column as well as via email at DartmouthLawJournal@Dartmouth.edu. Please attach the most recent version of the article, along with a CV.

Guidelines for DLJ Online Submissions

Undergraduate students at any institution may submit an article for review. The article will be published exclusively on DLJ Online following completion of a publication contract and a two-week editorial period.

Submission method: The DLJ accepts DLJ Online submissions via the form on the right column as well as via email at DartmouthLawJournal@Dartmouth.edu.

Expedited Review

The DLJ accepts requests for expedited review in the event that you have received an offer of acceptance from another publication. If an article was submitted via ExpressO, please submit an expedited review request through ExpressO as well. If an article was emailed, we accept expedite requests at the same address.

Citations and Ethics
