The Harvard Law & Policy Review (HLPR), the official law journal of the national American Constitution Society, is currently seeking submissions for its Student Note Competition. The deadline for submissions for the Summer 2015 issue is Wednesday, January 7th.
HLPR is dedicated to providing a forum for substantive debate among progressive legal scholars, policymakers and practitioners. The Student Note Competition provides a unique opportunity for law students to publish their work in a high-level academic forum that is distributed to more than 4,000 leading lawyers nationwide, as well as to congressional offices and other progressive decision makers. We are seeking policy-oriented pieces that are 4,000-13,000 words, shorter in length than a typical journal article.
We welcome articles that you may have worked on as part of a law school class, or pieces you wrote from scratch. We are also interested in shorter (less than 4,000 words), policy-oriented pieces for online publication. These pieces can be non-traditional and do not have to take the form of a typical journal article.
Submissions should be sent to HarvardLPRSubmissions@gmail.com with the subject line “Student Note Competition.” If you have any questions, please contact Kate Schmidt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
