Submissions


The Tennessee Law Review welcomes manuscripts on any area of law and related disciplines, provided the treatment given to the topic is scholarly and well-researched. We review every submission we receive.

Manuscripts should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Text and citations should conform to the most recent edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.
  • Provide a cover letter including your name, school or affiliation, title of your manuscript, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
  • We encourage but do not require the provision of an abstract and conformity with the most recent edition of the Texas Law Review Manual on Usage & Style.
  • The journal does not accept articles written for academic credit in any graduate or undergraduate school, except those by second- and third-year students of UT Law.

We prefer electronic submissions through ExpressO. Please note that if you use this service, we will not send a separate acknowledgment of receipt; the only acknowledgment that your manuscript has been received will come from ExpressO.
