Call for Article Submissions: Journal of Gender and Social Policy & the Law Vol. 30.4

Posted by Senior Articles Editor, community karma 139

Dear Law Professors and Legal Practitioners,

As the Senior Articles Editor for the American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy, and the Law, I am delighted to inform you that we are currently accepting article submissions for publication in our upcoming issues. The latest Washington and Lee Law Review rankings place the American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law as one of the top-cited legal periodicals in the U.S. and selected non-U.S. regions in the subject area of Social Policy, Gender, Sexuality and the Law.

You can submit your article for consideration either by email to, or through sites such as ExpressO, Scholastica, etc. Please note we do not accept articles written by current law students. We look for articles that present new arguments or perspectives about timely legal issues primarily in U.S. laws, or have some sort of nexus to U.S. law (comparative sections are acceptable). We prefer pieces that are around 15,000 words and include at least 150 footnotes. Generally, we evaluate articles depending on many factors, including: the strength of the argument, novelty, complexity, policy considerations, and making sure that the overall topic(s) falls within the Journal’s subject area.

We look forward to receiving your article submission.
