Submissions: Print Edition

The University of Miami Law Review  is now accepting submissions for Volume 70, which will be published during the 2015–2016 academic year. The Law Review welcomes articles and essays on a wide range of legal topics, and we give serious consideration to every submission made.  Due to the volume of quality submissions that we receive, we are unable to consider student-submitted articles at this time.

The University of Miami Law Review is indexed in Contents of Current Legal Periodicals, Current Law Index, Index to Legal Periodicals, and Public Affairs Information Service, Inc., and is available on WESTLAW and LEXIS. The Review’s International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is 0041-9818.

If you have any questions about submissions, please contact the Senior Articles Editor, at lawreview@law.miami.edu, with “Questions About Submissions” in the subject line.

Submission Guidelines

The University of Miami Law Review welcomes submissions of both articles and essays that represent original work of the author. While we do not abide by a strict word limit, preference will be given to articles under 30,000 words and essays under 12,000 words, including footnotes.  We will continue to publish articles over 30,000 words if the length is merited.

All submissions should conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed. 2010).  In general, the University of Miami Law Review follows The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style (2d ed. 2006) for grammar, style, and usage. We prefer submissions to be in word format but will also accept PDFs and hardcopies.

Submissions should be in Times New Roman, no smaller than 12-point font, should utilize footnotes instead of endnotes, and should have numbered pages. All submissions must include (1) a cover letter, (2) a brief abstract, (3) a copy of the manuscript, and (4) the author’s most recent résumé or C.V.

Specialty Issues

Symposium Issue

The University of Miami Law Review publishes a Symposium issue each year, which is not open to outside submissions. Panelists from the Symposium write the articles for this issue.  Information regarding the 2016 Symposium can be found here.

If you have any questions about submissions for this issue, please contact the Symposium Editor, Andrea Nickerson, with “Questions About Symposium Submissions” in the subject line.

The Eleventh Circuit Issue

Every year, the University of Miami Law Review’s fourth issue strives to provide readers with an analysis of current and timely issues pending within the Eleventh Circuit. The Eleventh Circuit issue is unique to the University of Miami Law Review—no other journal publishes an issue like it. As the premier publication for law review articles regarding the Eleventh Circuit, past issues have either provided broad overviews of relevant topics or focused on a single, relevant theme.

We are now accepting submissions for Volume 70, Issue 4, which will be published in the summer of 2016. We encourage authors to write on any timely and important Eleventh Circuit topic. Moreover, submissions do not have to be limited to a federal issue or topic. An intertwining of both federal and state issues is welcomed, as it provides for a wider audience and a more in-depth article.

If you have a suggestion for this issue or questions about submissions, please contact the Eleventh Circuit Editor with “Eleventh Circuit Issue Submissions” in the subject line.
