Online Submissions

Northwestern University Law Review Online (NULR Online) publishes shorter, more accessible scholarly pieces that are intended for a wider audience than most traditional journal articles. As such, NULR Online prefers pieces between 3,000 to 6,000 words, and will only consider unsolicited submissions that are less than 10,000 words, inclusive of footnotes. We aim to publish a wide range of content, including short essays, responses to articles, debates, book reviews, and other forms of legal scholarship. We welcome submissions from professors, judges, practitioners, and law students.

Selected submissions will be published on the Law Review's website and are carried on Westlaw and LexisNexis. In addition, up to two NULR Online pieces are selected for publication in each of the print Law Review's four annual issues.

How to Submit

NULR Online accepts submissions on a continuous basis throughout the year. Authors are encouraged to submit through the online submissions service Scholastica. We also accept submissions via email.
