Article Submissions

The Southern California Law Review receives approximately 3,000 unsolicited manuscripts each year. From this pool we ultimately select 12 for publication. Our article selection process is coordinated by the Executive Articles Editor and proceeds on a rolling basis.

 C O N T E N T

We prefer articles under 35,000 words (including footnotes). All submissions should conform to the 19th edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.

 P R O C E D U R E
