Columbia University School of Law is inviting submissions for the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law on a rolling basis.

About Columbia University School of Law

Columbia Law School is the law school of Columbia University, a private Ivy League university in New York City. Columbia Law is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious law schools in the world.

About the Journal

The Columbia Journal of Gender and Law is edited and published entirely by students at the Columbia University School of Law.

The Journal publishes interdisciplinary works rooted in feminist inquiry with the aim of promoting dialogue, debate, and awareness that will broaden the very concept of feminism as one that critically engages multiple and varied forms of social hierarchy and power differentials and their relation to the law.

About Call for Papers

The Columbia Journal of Gender and Law welcomes your writing. We encourage the submission of articles, essays, comments, book reviews, and letters. All pieces accepted for publication go through a collaborative editing process between Journal editors and the authors.

Submission Guidelines

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission’s compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author’s Guidelines.

How to submit?

If you have access to Scholastica, that is the simplest way to submit your piece to JGL (and other journals at the same time). If you are affiliated with a law school, contact your library to see if your school has a Scholastica account.

Otherwise, please send submissions to our submissions email account
