E. Supp. Submissions

The Electronic Supplement to the Boston College Law Review features analysis of timely legal issues. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis at bclresupp@bc.edu.

E. Supp. Submission Guidelines

The Boston College Law Review Electronic Supplement (E. Supp.) publishes a variety of pieces, including essays, practitioner reflections, and response pieces on a rolling basis. 

The E. Supp. welcomes submissions from legal practitioners, academics, and law students. It prioritizes publication of pieces that provide insightful analysis of, or unique solutions to, timely or emerging legal and policy challenges. The E. Supp. also serves as the primary platform to respond to pieces published in the Boston College Law Review.

Submissions to the E. Supp. should meet the general guidelines for submission to the Boston College Law Review, but they are generally more lightly footnoted. Pieces typically range from 1,000 to 5,000 words and should not exceed 6,000 words. The E. Supp. aims to publish work approximately four to eight weeks after authors accept offers for publication.
