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 (21st ed. 2020). 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.
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.
All submissions made to the University of Miami Law Review must be made through Scholastica. No other methods of submission will be considered.
If requesting an expedited review, please indicate the date by which a decision is needed, in addition to identifying all current offers.
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.
If you have any questions about submissions for this issue, please contact the Symposium Editors, UMLRSymposium@law.miami.edu, 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.
