Harvard Environmental Law Review: Call for Submissions

Posted by Claire Horan, community karma 2147
Call for Submissions 

The Harvard Environmental Law Review (HELR) is accepting submissions for Volume 42, Issue 2, which will be published in Spring 2018.

HELR seeks legal and policy-based articles that significantly advance the environmental field. HELR has adopted a broad view of environmental law to include such areas as climate change; energy; environmental justice; green infrastructure; noise regulation; science and technology control; toxic substances control; and workplace pollution. For this issue, we are particularly interested in pieces centered on environmental justice, international/comparative environmental law, or water law. 

Length limits: HELR gives preference to articles under 25,000 words in length, including text and footnotes. HELR does not publish articles exceeding 35,000 words except in extraordinary circumstances.

In order to reserve space for student authors at Harvard Law School, HELR does not review submissions from current J.D. or LL.M. students at other law schools.

Is HELR potentially interested in an article about the constitutionality, under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, of western states' water laws based on the prior appropriation doctrine?  This is the "first in time, first in right" paradigm incorporated into the water statutes (or state constitutions) of 17 western states:  Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.

I have all the research accomplished for this article, know my thesis, and appreciate its implications.  My resume is posted on Scholastica.  You are welcome to call if you want to discuss this.
