Article Length Policy
The PROLAW Journal has a suggested range of work between 3,000 – 15,000 words, including footnotes; however all submissions that are substantial, scholarly work will be considered.
Most articles require a modest degree of editing to comply with The Bluebook referencing style. We believe that our authors make their arguments most effectively when they speak in their own voice. With this in mind, our Faculty Director and Article Editors will make every effort to limit proposed changes to those that substantially improve or clarify the author’s argument.
