Submissions to the Fordham Law Review
The Fordham Law Review is published six times a year (three times each academic semester). The Law Review will begin reviewing submissions for Volume 91 in February 2022. The Fordham Law Review strongly prefers to receive submissions via Scholastica. We will also consider hard copy submissions, but cannot accept unsolicited submissions via email. Due to the large volume of submissions, we are unable to respond personally to each submission.
The Fordham Law Review currently has no minimum or maximum page requirements for submissions. The Article Selection Committee reviews all submissions and welcomes pieces in various formats, including essays and articles. Citations should conform to the 21st edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.
Please note that we do not accept submissions from students currently pursuing a J.D. degree nor do we publish book reviews.
The Law Review requires at least 48 hours to process expedited requests and strongly prefers to receive expedited requests via Scholastica.
