Submission Guidelines

National Lawyers Guild Review is published quarterly by the NLG. Our readership includes lawyers, scholars, legal workers, jailhouse lawyers and activists, and with that audience in mind, we seek to publish lively, insightful articles that address and respond to the interests and needs of the progressive and activist communities. We encourage authors to write articles in language accessible to both legal professionals and intelligent non-experts. Submissions that minimize legal jargon are especially encouraged.

Citations should appear as endnotes and follow Bluebook style. Citations should identify sources completely and accurately. Lengthy textual commentary and string cites are discouraged.

Though we are open to manuscripts of any length, articles typically run about 7,000 words. Pages in issues of NLGR generally contain about 350 words.

Submit your manuscript in Microsoft Word format electronically as an attachment to an email. Include a short sentence or two describing your professional affiliation, background and area(s) of legal specialization. This description will appear with the article if it is accepted for publication. Please also include a phone number and ground mail address.

Manuscripts should be sent to the Articles Editor at, whereupon they will be forwarded to the Editor-in-Chief for review by members of the NLGR's editorial board. If accepted, manuscripts will be edited, and the edited manuscripts will be returned to the author for review; however, because of production schedules, late changes are prohibited and authors generally do not see typeset proofs. We make every effort to clear any changes with the author.
