Professors Allen Rostron and Nancy Levit have a revised version of their charts about law journal submissions, expedites, and rankings from different sources for the Spring 2013 submission season for the 202 main journals of each law school.
The first chart contains information about each journal's preferences about methods for submitting articles (e.g., ExpressO, Scholastica, email, or regular mail), as well as special formatting requirements and how to request an expedited review. The second chart contains rankings information from U.S. News and World Report, as well as data from Washington & Lee's law review website.
Note that there has been movement toward Scholastica, and the authors have tried to track which law reviews prefer Scholastica or exclusively accept through that channel.
Also, they now include, where available, information about when journals are open to receive article, i.e. the opening date for the submission season.
