Timely publication is our priority. Baylor Law School operates on the quarter system. We publish books in the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. We coordinate our publication schedules with quarters ending in late October, late January, and late April. If your article is time-sensitive, then our priorities match yours.
The following are general guidelines for article submissions to the Baylor Law Review:
We accept articles by mail or by e-mail.
Please use footnotes rather than endnotes. Footnotes should conform to the 19th edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, and to the 12th edition of the Texas Rules of Form. Please attach a cover sheet including your name, contact information (address, phone number and e-mail), affiliation, biographical information, article title, and journal in which you seek publication (fall, winter, spring).
We welcome articles of any length. We prefer any article submissions to be in Microsoft Word format. We will not consider any article submitted in CLE form.
Because a limited amount of space is reserved for student articles, we only publish student articles written by members of the Baylor Law Review and are, therefore, unable to publish articles written by students from other schools. Additionally, because our book is oriented towards the practitioner, we do not publish book reviews or interdisciplinary articles.
We review all articles received. The Senior Executive Editors review submissions in coordination with the faculty. We strive to promptly complete our review of each submission. Please contact us if you desire expedited review.
