GMLR is currently accepting print submissions
The George Mason Law Review publishes four times a year. One to two of issues are published in conjunction with symposia hosted by the Law Review. The remainder of these issues contain four to five professional articles. All issues contain one to three student pieces. The Law Review only considers student work from Antonin Scalia Law School students for print issues. The Articles Committee will only consider submissions received through this form or Scholastica. Due to the high number of submissions we receive, we are unable to review and respond to each one.
The GMLR Forum is currently accepting submissions.
- GMLR Forum submissions should be short, original pieces of timely scholarship on newsworthy topics that are accessible to a wide audience.
- Forum pieces may be short articles, responses to other Forum pieces (GMLR or elsewhere), responses to other articles, or essays.
- Pieces may be authored by professors, practitioners, or students.
- Once a piece is selected, it typically takes about six weeks to publish it.
- All Forum pieces must be 5,000 words or less (10 pages single spaced). The page limit includes footnotes. However, shorter pieces are encouraged.
- Lighter footnoting is also encouraged. The average Forum piece should have 40-50 footnotes.
- Longer pieces may be accepted for exceptional submissions.
- Forum pieces may be categorized as “Essay,” “Short Article,” “Response to GMLR Article,” or “Response to non-GMLR Article” on the submission form.
