Are Main Law Reviews at the Top 50 Law Schools Considering Submissions During the Summer?

If you're on a main (non-specialty) law review at a top 50 law school, can you please post a comment indicating (1) what journal you're on, (2) whether you folks are considering article submissions during the summer, which is to say whether you are prepared to make offers during the summer (even if more slowly than normal), and (3) if you aren't considering submissions during the summer, when you close and when you reopen? Both our legal academic readers and I myself would be much obliged. Thanks!

First Amendment Law Review at UNC School of Law is taking submissions this summer for spring 2008. It is the first and only law review dedicated to the First Amendment. http://falr.unc.edu/submissions.html [EV: This comment was posted before I changed the post to ask about main (non-specialty) journals; in any case, thanks to the commenter -- I hadn't known about the journal.]

Huh -- an e-mail I got from the Harvard Law Review reported, "We've more or less closed down now for the summer. [We'll] still be keeping tracking of things as they come in, and if we need to move on something we will, but in general with finals now and everyone being dispersed shortly we are basically wrapping up."

For those authors who look beyond top 50 law schools to law reviews highly ranked in Washington &Lee's impact ratings - Akron Law Review (ranked #41) is still accepting submissions for all 2007 - 2008 editions. Offers made on a rolling basis.

Harvard Law Review:
The Harvard Law Review will continue to accept submissions, but our usual review process will be suspended until mid-August, so we will only make final decisions over the summer in extraordinary circumstances. Authors are encouraged to submit again beginning August 13, and are further encouraged, due to the nature of our review process, to submit to us exclusively 10 days ahead of submitting to any other journals.

I know you asked for high ranked journals but if any professors are looking at lower ranked journals, Golden Gate (yes very low ranked) is accepting submissions all summer and I will be making offers as I get them. So if any professors who aren't tenured yet are looking for a good chance of getting published, look at us PLEASE. (And yes I am begging.)

EV: Out of curiosity, why did you specify that you were only interested in "main (non-specialty)" reviews? I'm not in law school and have no dog in this fight. Yet, I still wonder why you would exclude a vast number of journals from your query.

Are the specialty journals really so sumarily dismissed by academics?

The Texas Law Review is accepting submissions over the summer and our editors will be reading, but will not be meeting to make decisions. The editors will reconvene the last two weeks of August and intend to make offers on summer submissions then.
