Submissions

The Duke Law Journal is published eight times per year. We invite the submission of unsolicited articles, essays, and comments, and we review every submission we receive.

Manuscripts should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Please conform text and citations to the 21st edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. We are unlikely to accept submissions that substantially deviate from Bluebook form.
  • If you wish to submit a cover letter along with your manuscript, please provide the letter in Scholastica.
  • We encourage but do not require the provision of an abstract and conformity with the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
  • Please review our article lengthediting, and Open Access policies before submitting articles to the Journal.
  • We do not typically publish comments.
  • We do not publish student notes from non-Duke students.

We will accept and review article submissions for Volume 71 on a rolling basis over the course of two rounds this year. The first round will open on February 1, 2021. The second round will be held in August 2021. A designated number of slots will be held open for the August submission period. Due to the pandemic, all submissions must be made through Scholastica and will not be accepted via mail this year.
