The Duke Law Journal invites submissions of articles and essays making important, original contributions to legal scholarship. Comments, case notes, and book reviews will be considered on a limited basis. The Duke Law Journal does not publish student notes from non-Duke students. Manuscripts should conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (21st ed. 2020). Authors are encouraged to also conform to the Chicago Manual of Style (17th ed. 2017). Manuscripts can be submitted through Scholastica or directly to the Duke Law Journal via email during submission periods. Submission periods typically take place February-March and July-August. Manuscripts submitted directly to the Duke Law Journal should be accompanied by a cover letter including the author’s name, address, telephone number, electronic mail address, and the title of the manuscript.
Volume 71 is currently closed for submissions, but we expect Volume 72 to open in February 2022.
For Duke Law Journal Online Submissions, please email all manuscripts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The online department will review submissions on a rolling basis throughout the year until all slots for volume 71 are filled.
