Time to Scramble for Ways and Means to Get Published in Law Journals
While it is fairly obvious that the bench (and bar) don't read legal scholarship published in law journals, that is not going to stop law profs from churning them out, particularly junior profs scrambling to add publication credits to their CVs in advance of tenue review time. Summer is over ... draft law journal articles have been written ... time to submit them for publication. UMKC's Allen Rostron and Nancy Levit come to the aid by updating their Information for Submitting Articles to Law Reviews & Journals [SSRN]:
This document contains information about submitting articles to law reviews and journals, including the methods for submitting an article, any special formatting requirements, how to contact them to request an expedited review, and how to contact them to withdraw an article from consideration. It covers 202 law reviews. The document was fully updated in July 2011.
Very useful. Even a self-contained community of unworldly dreamers sometimes needs professional guidance counseling. [JH]
