Submissions: Online Edition

University of Miami Law Review Caveat

University of Miami Law Review Caveat is the University of Miami Law Review‘s official online companion publication. UMLR Caveat features short essays by law professors, judges, practicing lawyers, and scholars from other disciplines. Further, UMLR Caveat offers its contributors an opportunity to respond to articles printed in the University of Miami Law Review. This extension of the Law Review’s printed pages allows for quick dissemination of the legal community’s initial impressions of important judicial decisions, legislative developments, and timely legal policy issues.

We welcome any submission that would meaningfully contribute to academic legal discourse. Submissions may respond to the articles and essays that we publish in both our print edition and UMLR Caveat. Submissions may also explore new ideas that are unrelated to our print content, or comment on legal issues that are of current interest. Due to the volume of quality submissions that we receive, we are unable to consider student-submitted articles at this time.
