Submissions

The Nebraska Law Review

The Nebraska Law Review welcomes unsolicited articles for publication consideration in the Review. Articles submitted should meet the following guidelines*:

  • 30,000 words or less
  • Articles must be completed works in publishable form
  • Citations should conform to the current edition of the Bluebook
  • Articles must use footnotes rather than endnotes

*Note: these guidelines are not strict requirements, merely recommendations for publication.

The Review accepts submissions by the following methods:

  • Hard Copy submission via standard mail (send to the Nebraska Law Review office)
  • Electronic submission via Scholastica
  • Electronic submission via email (send to lawrev@unl.edu)

The vast majority of articles submitted to the Review are submitted online through Scholastica.

The Review has a longstanding policy to not publish submissions from students outside of the University of Nebraska College of Law.

Requests for expedited reviews should be sent directly to Law Review staff at lawrev@unl.edu.

The Bulletin 

The Bulletin is an online component of the Nebraska Law Review. It offers a great forum to publicize your work, bolster your résumé, and discuss important issues in the public eye.

The Bulletin seeks shorter submissions as an alternative to what is published in the printed version of the Nebraska Law Review. One major benefit of the Bulletin is the publication time is much faster than publishing with a print journal. This allows you to quickly publish timely, relevant topics.

You also have the opportunity to publish your work as a "White Paper." Less formal than a traditional Law Review Article or Note, White Papers are lightly edited and have no Bluebook requirements. This also allows your piece to be published in a shorter amount of time than a traditional Law Review article.

There are no strict deadlines for submitting and publishing your writing on the Bulletin. The opportunity to publish on the Bulletin is available at any time throughout the year. Additionally, your article will be linked to Nebraska Law Review's Twitter account, @NebLRev, thus expanding the forum for you to express your thoughts and ideas.

The Bulletin can also be found on Scholastica. Contact the Online Editor for further information at carey.collingham@huskers.unl.edu.

*Note: The Bulletin is not published on Lexis or Westlaw.
