The South Carolina Law Review welcomes submissions on all legal topics. 

The Editor-in-Chief and Executive Articles Editors give serious consideration to every author’s submission and strive to be prompt in their review. While we strongly prefer submissions through Scholastica, the South Carolina Law Review also accepts submissions by mail and e-mail.

Submission Process

Note: Most authors will be notified of a decision within two weeks of submitting.

The South Carolina Law Review welcomes submissions by judges, professors, practitioners, and law students. All submissions should conform to the 21st edition of The Bluebook and include a cover letter and curriculum vitae.

In light of the ever-increasing length of law review articles, the South Carolina Law Review has adopted a policy limiting the length of articles we will accept or publish. The Law Review will give preferential review to articles under 30,000 words in length, including text and footnotes. The Law Review will not publish articles exceeding 40,000 words, except in extraordinary circumstances.

Please submit requests for expedited review via e-mail to The Executive Articles Editors make every effort to accommodate authors’ requests. Please include your name, submission title, other offers for publication, and your deadline for review in the request.
