The Editing Process

 

A Submissions Committee comprised of both J.D. and LL.M. candidates reviews articles once they are received and makes the final decision regarding publication. Individual submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis. Authors of articles to be published are contacted within six weeks of submission. If you are not contacted, please re-submit your article for further consideration.

If accepted, the Editor-in-Chief will send a packet of information to the author, including a contract. Once the publication agreement has been signed, an Editing Team is assembled and the technical and substantive editing of the article commences. Once this editing is complete, the author is sent a final version for approval. The approved version is converted into galley form and is reviewed by the Journal’s editorial staff. The final version is then published to the Journal website.
