SMU Law Review Forum welcomes article submissions from judges, professors, practitioners, and law clerks, but does not accept submissions from current law students. We publish on a rolling basis.
Times 11 or larger font is required for all submissions. Additionally, submissions must contain footnote, not endnote, citations that conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation or, when appropriate, The Greenbook: Texas Rules of Style. The SMU Law Review Forum does not accept submissions longer than 15,000 words (except in extraordinary circumstances), and seeks to publish articles between 3,000 and 6,000 words. If you are interested in publishing a longer work, please consider submitting to the SMU Law Review or the Journal of Air Law and Commerce.
All submissions should include (1) a resume or curriculum vitae for the author, (2) an abstract on a separate page, and (3) a copy of the manuscript.
Due to the nature of the short-form articles the SMU Law Review Forum publishes, review of most submissions will occur within one week.
Questions regarding submissions policies should be directed to the Forum Executive Editor, Christopher Thomson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
