Article Submissions

The ACLR Articles Committee works diligently to select articles that are timely and relevant to the field of American Criminal Law, clear and polished, thoroughly researched, and that speak to the journal’s practitioner reader base. As a general rule, the ACLR looks for articles ranging from approximately 8,000-11,000 words, though the staff of the ACLR reserves the right to make exceptions. The ACLR follows the Texas Manual of Style. Citations in manuscripts should appear in footnotes, not endnotes, and follow The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (20th ed. 2015).

The American Criminal Law Review is currently accepting submissions for Volume 55. The ACLR only accepts submissions through Scholastica. Please do not send submissions via email or mail.
