The Submissions Process
Submissions for the Spring 2024 are now closed and are under consideration. We will open for submissions for Fall 2024 over the summer.
To submit your work, please submit a PDF file of your article via Scholastica. There is no need to email submissions.
Submissions should have a clear connection to both law and the humanities, broadly defined. We have previously published scholarship in areas including law and literature, law and religion, legal history, and legal theory. We encourage authors to consult recent issues to get a sense of the breadth of scholarship welcomed by the Yale Journal of Law and the Humanities. In order to ensure that publication opportunities are accessible to scholars whether their background is rooted in law or in the humanities, either Bluebook OR Chicago Style citations are permissible.
The Journal values blind review—each piece will be anonymized and considered without regard to academic position or institutional affiliation. Every submission is read by an Editor-in-Chief and a team of editors. The Journal does have a policy of issuing desk rejections with the approval of two readers. Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we cannot individually respond to authors whose pieces are not accepted.
Please send any submissions questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
