Submission Guidelines

If you have original research, a research note, or legal commentary, we invite you submit your piece for consideration at LJLA.  Submitting to LJLA requires two separate documents:
  1. A cover letter addressed to the editor, Scott Boddery, which contains the email address, phone number, and institutional affiliation of each author.
  2. A manuscript in PDF or Word format, with all identifying information removed.


LJLA asks that all submissions abide by the following guidelines:
  • An abstract of approximately 100-150 words.
  • One-inch margins and 12-point font.
  • Manuscript no longer than 50, double-spaced pages.
  • Any citation style is suitable for the submission stage, but once accepted for publication, our editorial team will transform all references to Bluebook format.
