CLR Adopts Scholastica for Author Submissions

19 Jun 2012 12:08pm  

The California Law Review is excited to announce our move to Scholastica for author submissions beginning this summer. CLR has a tradition of publishing cutting edge legal scholarship and our new partnership with Scholastica will help us continue to select and cultivate pieces that reflect our mission. CLR prides itself on its commitment to finding and promoting new scholars with diverse ideas and backgrounds. As part of our commitment to tracking our success in finding promising scholars that may be passed over in traditional law review selection processes, CLR will collect optional demographic data in addition to institutional data and CVs.

Starting with our next submission cycle at the end of this summer, we will only accept submissions through Scholastica and email. We will no longer accept submissions through Express-O.

Institutions can create accounts to pay for their author's submissions to Scholastica, so authors will have the same payment experience they have had on Express-O. Scholastica is committed to ensuring that authors are able to submit regardless of institutional support and will offer fee waivers and other accommodations (
