The Submissions Process
The Yale Journal of Law & Humanities is now accepting submissions for the Fall 2021 issue of Volume 33. Submissions are due by 5 p.m. ET on May 20th, and review of submissions for the Fall issue will begin shortly after the closing of the submissions window. Submissions received after 5 p.m. ET on May 20th and before 5 p.m. ET on December 21st will be considered for the Spring 2022 issue.
Authors should submit their work in a Microsoft Word document with double-spaced text to firstname.lastname@example.org. Given that our general review procedure is blind, authors should remove any identifying information from the submission. The submission should also have a clear connection to both law and the humanities, broadly defined.
We confirm receipt of submissions and contact authors regarding final decisions by email. We aim to give each author a final decision within 6-8 weeks from the initial review period (though this period may be longer for authors submitting during the summer, around the winter holiday period, or depending on the volume of submissions). All submissions are reviewed by a Submissions Editor or an Editor-in-Chief.
The Journal does not publish law student Notes. However, students from any law school may submit their work for potential publication as standard Articles. Student work will be reviewed alongside all other submissions and with the same procedures, including rolling submissions and blind evaluations.
Please send any submissions questions to: email@example.com.
