Scholar Submissions

The UC Irvine Law Review accepts article submissions through Scholastica during our Spring submissions period. Use the "Submit via Scholastica" button at the bottom of the page to access our Scholastica page. Please find general submission guidelines below:

General Submission Guidelines

  • Manuscripts should be double-spaced, in Microsoft Word format, and use footnotes rather than endnotes.
  • Text and citations should conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (20th ed. 2015) and the Chicago Manual of Style (17th ed. 2017).
  • Authors should provide a word count, including footnotes.
  • The Law Review has a strong preference for accepting articles between 10,000 and 25,000 words (including footnotes).
  • The Law Review encourages the use of gender-neutral language.
  • The Law Review requests that all manuscript files be anonymized, that is, stripped of names and identifying information, to preserve the Law Review’s blind review process. Authors should enter their name and identifying information only in the designated form fields when they submit their article via Scholastica.
  • Any images, graphs, or charts must either be grayscale or convertible to grayscale.
    • If your article has equations, please ensure that the equations are already grayscale, in picture format (where the picture is no longer editable by the Law Review), and readable.
