Book Reviews

Each spring, the Michigan Law Review publishes an Annual Survey of Books. This issue of the Law Review is dedicated to reviews of the most important new books related to the law. Reviews are typically around 8,500 words, including footnotes.

The selection period for Volume 116, which will be published in spring 2018, will run from March through late May 2017. The issue will contain reviews of books published in either 2016 and 2017.

The submission guidelines can be downloaded here.
