If you are interested in having your work published on our blog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions must follow the following standards:
1. Mission Statement:
The Journal of Law and Social Change (JLASC) is a student-run journal and seminar committed to interdisciplinary scholarship addressing social, racial, and economic justice. The purpose of the JLASC Blog is to publish timely, short-form works that complement the Journal’s mission.
2. What to submit:
JLASC Blog accepts a range of formats and styles for blog posts, and we are open to creative formats too. Some past posts include: short law review articles; interviews with a practitioner; or something else!
Suggested Length: about 2-5 pages double spaced, ideally < 50 footnotes
3. Format accepted:
- final draft of blog post preferred, or
- detailed proposal or rough drafts will be accepted, but only with an accompanying annotated bibliography (listing the sources to be cited and one sentence of explanation per source)
- 1. Clear author voice
- 2. Clean document (without glaring errors)
- 3. Citations dependent on format:
- Short law review article requires a citation for every factual assertion. We tend to prefer standard footnotes.
- Interviews and transcripts might have fewer citations where a practitioner is reflecting on their personal experience. But still require citations for factual assertions (i.e. if someone says a statistic, try to find evidence to support that, or else put in a footnote with a similar statistic.)
- Creative posts should include citations that would place the post within ongoing scholarly dialogue. Discussion about what this entails may begin after JLASC offers to post.
