The William Mitchell Law Review welcomes unsolicited manuscripts.  Please read and consider the following information before submitting your piece for publication.


The Law Review seeks to publish original legal scholarship of regional, national, and international importance.  We accept works not only for their value in ongoing academic debate, but also for their practical usefulness to the legal profession.  The Law Review considers essays, books reviews, and interdisciplinary material in political science, economics, and philosophy on a limited basis.


The Law Review reserves discretion to edit submissions in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style and Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style.  We will use our best efforts to ensure that the piece, as published, accurately represents the author’s views.  The author has final say over the substance of the work; the Law Review retains final say over the work’s technical aspects.  These include typography, grammar, and style.


We request that all manuscripts submitted for consideration be double spaced, with citations placed in footnotes that conform to A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed. 2010).  In matters not addressed by the Bluebook, submissions should conform to The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed. 2010).
