Forum Submission System
**The Harvard Law Review will not be reviewing manuscripts submitted after April 19th, 2013. Any manuscripts submitted over the summer will be queued until we return in the fall. We will begin reviewing manuscripts again on August 5th. Please understand that we cannot honor requests for expedited review until August.**
Guidelines for Submission
A Response should comment on one of our Articles from an interesting and original perspective. Responses should take the form of short essays, which should not be as heavily footnoted and sourced as traditional law review articles.
Given the purpose of the Forum, we will give preference to submissions that are less than 3000 words in length and are unable to accept Responses exceeding 4000 words, including footnotes (note that Microsoft Word does not automatically include footnotes in its Word Count feature). In addition, please include an abstract of no more than 500 words, which will appear on our website if your Response is selected for publication.
Citations should conform to the 18th edition of The Bluebook.
Editing and Publication Process
Because one of the purposes of the Forum is to publish timely replies, Responses receive expedited editing. Once a Response is selected for publication, it will be edited and returned to the author for approval of non-technical changes. Depending on editorial resources, Responses will be published within a few weeks of submission.
