Exclusive Submissions

Exclusive Submission Track: July 2017

The Northwestern University Law Review is pleased to announce our exclusive submission track for Fall 2017 submissions. We will accept exclusive submissions from July 1, 2017-July 21, 2017 at 11:59 PM Central Time. For all articles submitted in accordance with the instructions outlined below, the Law Review guarantees Articles Board consideration and a publication decision by July 28, 2017.

Articles receiving a publication offer via the exclusive submission track will be published in Volume 112 in the spring of 2018. In exchange for this prioritized and timely consideration, a participating author must agree to withhold the article submitted through our exclusive submission track from submission to any other publication until receiving a decision back from us. Authors not receiving publication offers are free to submit elsewhere after notification of our publication decision decision, which will occur no later than July 28, 2017. 

Please note that by submitting an article via the exclusive submission track, the author agrees to accept a binding publication offer, should one be extended.

To submit beginning July 1, 2017, please email your article manuscript, a cover letter, and CV to Brandon Johnson, Senior Articles Editor, at b-johnson2018@nlaw.northwestern.edu. Please kindly title the subject line "2017 Exclusive Submission Track."
