Exclusive Submissions

The Northwestern University Law Review accepts articles on an exclusive basis in January. All articles submitted via our exclusive submission track are considered by a member of the Articles Board, and publication decisions are made by the end of January.

Our Exclusive Submission cycles are now closed. The Northwestern University Law Review Exclusive Submission Cycle will reopen on January 1, 2021 and run until January 15, 2021. For all articles that have been submitted by January 15, 2021 in accordance with the instructions outlined below, the Law Review guarantees consideration by an Articles Board editor.

All final publication decisions will be communicated to authors by January 31, 2021.

Participating authors agree to withhold the article submitted through our exclusive submission track from submission to any other publication until receiving a decision from the Northwestern University Law Review. Participating authors further agree to accept a binding publication offer, should one be extended.

Articles receiving a publication offer via this exclusive submission track will be published in Volume 115 in the fall of 2021. Though publication timelines can often be negotiated, participating authors agree to accept the publication timeline the Law Review offers.

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. Interested authors must submit Articles to the Volume 115 Senior Articles Editor, Madeline Yzurdiaga, during the submission window at madelineyzurdiaga2021@nlaw.northwestern.edu.
