Wondering which law reviews are only accepting submissions via Scholastica? In this blog post, we provide an ongoing list.

Since the last update to this blog post in February of 2018, 57 new law reviews have joined our platform. Law reviews are also continuing to transition to only accepting submissions via Scholastica. As of now, over 140 law reviews only use Scholastica.

This blog post outlines every journal that uses only Scholastica. We hope this will be a useful resource for authors trying to figure out where law reviews accept submissions, and for law librarians or other law school staff trying to advise students and faculty authors.

We’ve also included a list of all of the specialized law reviews that are using only Scholastica. For example, in recent months many international and public policy law journals have moved from other platforms to Scholastica.

With that said, below is our (ongoing) list of student law reviews that have chosen to use Scholastica for their article submissions platform:
