Marquette Benefits and Social Welfare Law Review is now accepting manuscript submissions for publication in our upcoming Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 volumes.
MBSWLR publishes articles devoted to international and domestic civil rights and social justice perspectives on employee benefits, disability, elder, health, poverty, and social insurance law. Since 2002, and as formerly known as the Elder's Advisor, it has been produced by Marquette University law students who work closely with experts in the field to bring to publication a readable compendium of current issues and complex policy problems at the intersection of benefits law and social justice.
MBSWLR seeks to publish succinct and readable articles of interest to scholars, policy makers, and practitioners. Accessibility is key to our effort to create dialogue and progress in benefits and social welfare issues. Important articles may, for example, explore points of philosophy or policy in detail, or may encapsulate an issue for non-specialists. Text and footnotes generally do not exceed forty doubled-spaced manuscript pages.
Submissions should include:
- One copy of the manuscript, double-spaced, with one-inch margins (Note: All citations should conform to the 21st Edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation);
- Abstract of the manuscript; and
- Curriculum vitae for the author(s)
