The George Mason Law Review publishes four times per year. The single most important criterion for an article to be considered for publication is that it must make an original contribution to the scholarly literature on the topic.
The Law Review publishes approximately three to five professional articles per issue. The Law Review also publishes one to three student pieces per issue. The Law Review only considers student work from George Mason students.
Volume 24 is full. The Articles Committee will begin reviewing submissions for our next volume on February 27, 2017. Please note that one issue per volume is devoted to the Law Review’s annual Symposium on Antitrust Law.
- Cover letter (preferably including abstract of article) with total word count above-the-line and preferably total footnote word count
- CV with contact information, including phone number, mailing address and email
- Manuscripts should be created in Microsoft Word and double-spaced, preferably utilizing Times New Roman font
- We strongly prefer footnotes. Text and citations should conform to A Uniform System of Citation (20th ed. 2015) (“The Bluebook”)
The Law Review strongly prefers electronic submissions. While we accept submissions in each of the following forms, beginning February 27, 2017, we prefer that submissions be made through Scholastica where possible. We accept:
- ExpressO submissions
Please do not send articles submissions to email@example.com. Such submissions will be immediately deleted and not reviewed. Please send your submissions and related correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests for Expedited Review
Requests for expedited review should be made via email to email@example.com or through Scholastica/Expresso directly.
Please use “Expedited Review Request” and the article title as the subject line of the email, and include the following information in the body of the email: the author’s name, the article’s title, a contact phone number, the journal making the offer, and the deadline for the expedited review to be completed. Because of the large number of expedited review requests we receive and the limited time frame that we have to complete the review, we generally do not personally respond to each expedited review request. However, we will make every effort to review each expedite within the time constraints.
Hard Copy Submission
We accept hard copy submissions but we strongly encourage electronic submissions. If your hard copy submission is selected for further review, we will request an electronic copy of your article. Please send only one copy to the following address:
