The Journal welcomes articles on all aspect of law related to education. The Journal seeks to promote and welcomes commentary on articles we have published.

Except under unusual circumstances, it is the policy of the Journal not to publish manuscripts which have appeared or are to appear in other publications. Accordingly, all manuscripts should be submitted with the understanding that the Journal possesses the exclusive right to publication. If and when the manuscript is published, it becomes property of the Journal and all copyrights will be taken out in the name of Jefferson Law Book Company, and all rights in copyright reserved to Jefferson Law Book Company. The Journal does subscribe in principle to the Draft Model Author/Journal Agreement of the Association of American Law Schools.

The following procedures should be adhered to when submitting manuscripts:

  • Use of Bluebook citation form is required.
  • If an article is accepted for publication, the author will be notified as soon as possible. Page proofs will then be sent to the authors. It is vital that they be checked with meticulous care, since that will be the only opportunity for the author to correct errors or modify editorial changes. Authors will receive 1 complimentary issue of the Journal. Additional issues may be purchased if they are requested before the printing begins.
