The Tennessee Law Review is published quarterly and edited by UT Law students.  The publisher is the Tennessee Law Review Association, Inc., a not-for-profit organization.

Submission Guidelines

The Tennessee Law Review welcomes manuscripts on any area of law and related disciplines, provided the treatment given to the topic is scholarly and well-researched. Every submission is reviewed on an anonymous basis.

Manuscripts should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Text and citations should conform to the most recent edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. 
  • We encourage but do not require the provision of an abstract and conformity with the most recent edition of the Texas Law Review Manual on Usage & Style. Manuals are available to purchase from the Law Review office, 123A.
  • The journal does not accept articles written for academic credit in any graduate or undergraduate school, except those by second- and third-year students of UT Law which may be submitted after the completion of the course.

We only accept electronic submissions through Scholastica. Please note that if you use this service, we will not send a separate acknowledgment of receipt; the only acknowledgment that your manuscript has been received will come from Scholastica.
