Submission Guidelines

Boston College Law School journals provide students with a valuable opportunity to gain research, writing and editing experience. Students are selected to take part in one of the Law School's four journals based on their first-year grades or successful performance on a demanding writing competition. They receive credit for their participation, and a faculty advisor supervises each of the reviews. Students also staff the Uniform Commercial Code Reporter-Digest, a quarterly publication of a national commercial service that summarizes and comments on all reported cases under the Uniform Commercial Code.

Boston College Law Reviews also frequently sponsor symposia on subjects of interest to each journal, such as the recent "Globalization and the Erosion of Sovereignty," a festschrift in honor of BC Law Professor Cynthia Lichtenstein.
