How to Submit

The Texas A&M Law Review welcomes submissions of unsolicited manuscripts on a rolling basis. Interested authors should submit their work well in advance of our three publication dates. Our fall issue typically publishes in early November; with our winter issue publishing in February and our spring issue publishing in April. Participants at any symposia or colloquium are encouraged to apply for publication in our journal on a preferred basis but we do not publish dedicated symposia issues.

Interested authors may submit articles, essays, and book reviews through Scholastica. Please include a CV with your submission.

Submission Length

The Texas A&M Law Review has no formal length requirements, and we will review all submissions regardless of length. However, we take the position that most articles can effectively convey their arguments within the range of 40-70 journal pages. We further believe that guidelines on word limits will enhance the quality of our legal scholarship and improve the editing process. To that end, we prefer articles between 15,000 and 30,000 words, including footnotes, however, depending on the circumstance, will we publish articles in excess of 30,000 words. The Law Review also encourages authors to submit essays, pieces between 8,000 and 15,000 words including footnotes. Essays typically have a more focused purpose—advancing a narrow thesis or contributing to discussion on a current, salient issue.
