The Loyola Law Review is currently accepting submissions for both the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 issues of Volume 68. We strongly encourage contributors to submit their manuscripts through Scholastica or via our submission form.
Our editors look forward to reading your submissions.
Print Submission Guidelines
We request that contributors comply with the following standards:
The Loyola Law Review strongly prefers articles under 25,000 words in length – the equivalent of about fifty published pages – including text and footnotes. The Law Review also encourages shorter essays which may include discussion of or commentary on recent developments, or those intended to engage in discussion or advance an idea. A piece is considered an essay if it is under 12,000 words in length – the equivalent of about twenty-five published pages.
Please use footnotes rather than endnotes. Footnotes should conform to the 21st Edition of the Bluebook.
The Loyola Law Review carefully considers all manuscripts on a rolling basis. However, we do not review articles between mid-May and the beginning of August. We notify authors of our decisions by email, but as a matter of policy, we do not discuss the reasons for our publication decisions. The Law Review is committed to give every author at least seven days to decide whether to accept any offer of publication.
The Forum Submissions
The Loyola Law Review is currently accepting submissions for its online companion, the Loyola Law Review Forum. Online pieces are typically short (2500-5000 words), timely, and applicable to a general audience. The Law Review accepts pieces for publication on The Forum on a rolling basis during the school year. All submissions should be in Microsoft Word format, and all citations should conform to standard Bluebook style. Please direct submissions to our submission form and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and include Online Submission in the subject line.
