Submit an Article
The Lewis & Clark Law Review is currently accepting submissions.
Submissions are generally accepted every August and February. Authors are encouraged to submit as early as possible after the opening of the submissions window. Please see below for information on submitting to the Online Supplement.
The Lewis & Clark Law Review welcomes manuscripts reflecting original scholarship in any area(s) of law. We publish pieces in the following categories:
- Articles. We are looking for originality, current legal relevance, a clear thesis, effective organization, good writing, and proper citations. Articles on the process of legal education and book reviews are rarely selected.
- Lewis and Clark Law Student Notes and Comments. Please note that we publish student notes and comments written by Lewis & Clark Law School students only. LCLR announces an annual open call for student submissions each spring. A Note typically focuses on a single case or statute in a jurisdictional, jurisprudential, or historical context, while a Comment addresses a recent case or statute as a touchstone for discussion of an emerging trend in a given area of the law.
Citations to authority in a manuscript should conform to the most recent edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (Harvard Law Review Association).
Electronic Submissions (Preferred)
We accept submissions in any of the following formats: Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, or Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf) file. Submissions should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae and a cover letter.
Submission via Scholastica is strongly preferred. Submissions will also be accepted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If submitting via e-mail, please include the author’s name and manuscript title in the subject line.
The review cannot return unsolicited manuscripts. If you wish to submit your manuscript on paper, please send it to:

The Lewis & Clark Law Review Online Journal is currently accepting submissions.
The Lewis & Clark Law Review has decided to establish its very own Online Only Journal to supplement our print publication. As a top 50 Law Review Journal, Lewis & Clark Law Review is a highly sought after and heavily cited journal. By establishing an online only supplement to our print journal, we hope to publish innovative and thought provoking articles that are at the forefront of emerging issues. Selected articles will be published to our website, as well as to Lexis and Westlaw.
The online journal is going ot feature articles that are shorter than traditional law review articles (we are aiming for 5,000-15,000 words), and while we aren’t limiting the topic of the articles, we would like to focus on topics that are particularly relevant to Oregon or the Pacific Northwest.
Submissions and questions may be sent to our Online Managing Editor, Amy Stinnett, at LCsubmissions@lclawreview.com.
