Write On! The Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law

The Journal of Gender, Social Policy, & the Law is currently accepting article submissions for publication in their upcoming issues. The latest Washington and Lee Law Review rankings list the American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy, & the Law as one of the top-cited legal periodicals in the U.S. and selected non-U.S. regions in the subject area of Social Policy, Gender, Sexuality and the Law. 

You can submit your article for consideration by email to gl-articles@wcl.american.edu, or through Scholastica. The Journal accepts submissions on a wide variety of topics and subjects within the legal field. They are interested in topics about disability law, racial justice and the law, constitutional issues, gender-based legal issues, health law, LGBTQIA+ issues within the legal system, and other related topics. To see our past publications, please visit http://www.jgspl.org/ and Westlaw for a complete list. 

However, please note that articles written by law students will not be accepted. Articles that present new legal arguments or perspectives about timely legal issues relating to U.S. laws directly or comparatively will be preferred. There should also be substantial legal analysis throughout the piece. Articles with a word limit of 15,000 words more or less, including at least 150 footnotes will be preferred. Generally, articles are evaluated depending on many factors such as the strength of the argument, novelty, complexity, policy considerations, and whether the overall topic(s) falls within the Journal’s subject area.
