Submissions


There is not a volume currently in production for the 2014-2015 academic year as the journal is on hiatus.


SJALP is currently accepting submissions for publication in Volume 7, to be published in the academic year 2013-2014. Publication decisions are made on a rolling basis.

Articles submitted to the Journal for review should conform to these guidelines:

1. Format and delivery. Please send your submission as an attachment in Microsoft Word format to sjalpsubmissions@gmail.com.
2. Content. SJALP takes a broad approach to animal law scholarship and accepts pieces on any of the legal, policy, or philosophical frameworks related to animal welfare and/or rights. While content may vary considerably, however, format and style should be those of a scholarly work, not of a newspaper article or opinion piece.
3. Citation format. Sources should be cited in footnotes in Bluebook format.
4. Cover page. Please preface your article with a page containing your name, affiliation (law school, advocacy organization, etc.), email address, and phone number. Do not include any of this identifying information in the article itself; this will ensure that authors' identities remain anonymous during review.
