SUBMITTING TO THE CORNELL LAW REVIEW    

The Cornell Law Review is currently accepting submissions for Volume 100.

HOW TO SUBMIT

The Cornell Law Review accepts the following submissions for consideration: articles, essays, book reviews, and symposium proposals.  A piece is generally considered an essay if it is between 10,000–18,000 words (inclusive of footnotes) and an article if it is longer than 18,000 words (inclusive of footnotes).

Electronic submission through ExpressO is strongly preferred.  Submissions should be in Microsoft Word format.

If a hard copy submission is necessary, please mail your article to:
Articles Office, Cornell Law Review, Myron Taylor Hall, Ithaca, New York 14853

We regret that hard copy submissions cannot be returned.

Please note that we will not accept submissions received via e-mail and that such submissions will not be returned.  Finally, please do not submit your article through both ExpressO and hard copy, as this will create two entries in our database.

SUBMISSION LENGTH

Cornell Law Review is a signatory to the Joint Statement on article length.  Accordingly, authors should be aware that although we have no minimum or maximum page requirements for submissions, we do have a strong preference for submissions that are 30,000 words or less, including text and footnotes.  The Review will not publish pieces exceeding 40,000 words except in extraordinary circumstances.

Text and citations should conform to the 19th edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.  Footnotes are strongly preferred over endnotes.  We encourage the use of gender-neutral language.

EXPEDITED REVIEWS

To request expedited review of an article, please do so via ExpressO or by e-mail to Senior Articles Editor David Coriell.  Please include “request for expedited review” in the subject line of the e-mail.  Expedite requests must include the title of your manuscript, the name of the competing journal that has extended an offer of publication and the date by which a decision is due.  If you submitted electronically, please also include a hyperlink to your submission or the ExpressO identification number assigned to your piece.  please note that due to the high volume of these requests, review of an article by a particular deadline may not be” possible.
