The Michigan Law Review strongly prefers articles that make a concise argument. We have joined many of our peer journals in signing the joint statement on article length. We are seeking a varied collection of essays (30 published pages or less) and articles (approximately 30 to 50 published pages). All pieces should be less than 25,000 words, including footnotes. This is not a firm cap, but it is a strong preference. In striving to meet this goal, we edit pieces in ways that avoid contributing to excessive length while honoring our light-edit policy.
If your article has been formally accepted by another journal, we will make every effort to comply with a request for expedited review. To facilitate the review process, please notify us of your offer deadline using Scholastica’s Expedite function.
