The Washington and Lee Law Review Online publishes three kinds of articles:
- Notice and Comment – Responses: this category includes commentaries and articles written in response to articles or comments published in the current volume of the Washington and Lee Law Review print edition or articles published by Washington and Lee University School of Law faculty.
- Liberty Hall – Debates: this category includes commentaries and articles written in response to the latest “Round Table” topic selected by the editors of the Online Edition; see the “Submissions” page for additional details.
- Lex Generalis – Developments: this category includes commentaries and articles written on current events in the law, major case law developments, or related topics that would be of interest to the legal community.
The Editorial Board of the Washington and Lee Law Review Online invites legal scholars and practitioners to submit articles, essays, and commentary on areas of the law that are currently of interest to the legal profession. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. Student-written works are not accepted. All submissions should be labeled with their intended submission category—Responses, Debates, or Developments—and should be approximately 3,000 to 10,000 words in length.
The Washington and Lee Law Review Online editors will make occasional calls for publication of articles, essays, and commentary to appear in the “Debates” portion of the Online Edition. All articles submitted in response to this call for publication should indicate that they are intended as responses to the call for publication and should meet any special criteria posted on the call page. If you wish to propose a topic for the “Debates” portion of the Online Edition, please contact the Online Development Editors for more information.
