Submissions

The Journal welcomes unsolicited manuscripts which discuss issues relevant to arts, entertainment, media and intellectual property law. We review submissions throughout the year, making most offers of publication in August and January.

To submit an article for consideration, please send an e-mail with the submission and author’s CV attached to our Submissions Editor at submissions@lawandarts.org. We also accept electronic manuscripts by submission through Expresso and Scholastica.

The Journal is committed to publishing a diverse, inclusive range of scholarship. We believe that the arts and legal communities are greatly enriched by articles which discuss a broad variety of legal issues and which represent the work of authors from all sorts of backgrounds. The Journal therefore welcomes manuscripts that communicate diverse perspectives and particularly encourages authors who have traditionally been underrepresented in legal academia to submit work.

Requirements:
  • All manuscripts submitted for consideration should be in Microsoft Word format, double-spaced, with citations placed in footnotes that conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (Columbia Law Review Ass’n et al. eds., 20th ed. 2015).
  • We encourage the use of gender-neutral language.
  • Submissions must be under 30,000 words.
  • At this time, the Journal does not review submissions from current J.D. students.
  • The Journal does not currently publish book reviews.
  • For questions about our submission policies, please contact our Submissions Editor at submissions@lawandarts.org.  For questions about our publication process, please contact our Articles Editor at articles@lawandarts.org.
