Submission Policy

The Harvard Law & Policy Review (HLPR) welcomes articles and essays from professors, judges, practitioners, policymakers, and students. Unsolicited manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced in Microsoft Word format, and citations should conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (18th ed. 2005). Submissions should be sent to the Review via e-mail: hlpr @ law.harvard.edu.

HLPR is seeking the following content:

Journal Articles

HLPR publishes two issues every year. We are seeking short, easily readable pieces that are of interest to legal scholars, legal practitioners, judges, and political activists and officeholders. The pieces should be about 5,000�10,000 words, lightly footnoted, and policy-oriented. We are looking for innovative pieces of particular interest to the progressive community. The submissions process is ongoing, but we typically select pieces for our Fall issue in early August and select pieces for our Spring issue by early January.

Journal Student Articles

HLPR publishes three student essays in each issue. We are seeking outstanding student writing from a diverse array of law schools. The pieces in our student writing section are more policy oriented than traditional legal writing, are less footnote heavy, and tend to be a bit shorter�4,000�6,000 words after our editing process, though we can work with longer at the outset. Our submissions process is ongoing, but we typically select pieces for our Fall issue in early August and select pieces for our Spring issue by early January.
