Manuscript Guidelines

The Wisconsin Law Review seeks articles that address timely and relevant legal topics of state, national or international significance. Text and citations must conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed. 2010) and the Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed. 2010). The Wisconsin Law Review gives preference to articles of 30,000 words or less, including text and footnotes.

As of November 12, 2012, the Wisconsin Law Review will no longer accept submissions from law students enrolled at other schools. Space for student-authored works is reserved for Wisconsin Law Review Members and current University of Wisconsin Law School students. Wisconsin Law Review Forward accepts and welcomes student submissions that conform to its standard submission criteria.

Generally speaking, the Wisconsin Law Review is unable to provide specific feedback regarding submissions.
