Submission Guidelines

The American Journal of Law and Equality seeks articles from a variety of perspectives that examine legal issues involving equality and discrimination in all their forms. Submissions might address issues involving economic equality, race, gender, disability, religion, political viewpoint, geography, gender identity, sexual orientation, or other pertinent topics. Diverse approaches and points of view are welcome, and submissions may draw on history, economics, political philosophy, and more. Submissions to the journal should be between 10,000-26,000 words, including footnotes.

In the spirit of discussion and debate, issues of the journal may include symposia in response to a particular theme or issue.

The American Journal of Law and Equality has a faculty-led editorial board. Every submission is reviewed by at least one faculty editor and before publication by more than one. 

To submit manuscripts, please visit and complete the submission process. Manuscripts are accepted in Word document and PDF formats.

Manuscripts submitted to AJLE for the first time do not need to follow any specific format - this includes references, as long as a citation style is used consistently across the manuscript. Although no specific formatting is required, the text in the manuscript should be easily legible and properly spaced; all manuscript pages should be numbered consecutively. Regardless of the file format on the first submission and revised version, once authors receive an email indicating the manuscript has been accepted for publication, they will be required to submit the final version of the manuscript using the format and style of The Bluebook.

The American Journal of Law and Equality is published on an annual basis mid-year (June/July).

Articles are published openly under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND) license.
