A Second Law Review Submission Guide

Tony Sebok (Brooklyn Law) has graciously permitted me to post a law review submissions guide he compiled. Together with a similar guide created by Scott Moss (in XLS format) faculty can have a pretty clear sense of what many of the top journals are up to this cycle. Maybe our new motto should be: “the Law, the Universe, and some Public Goods.”

That said, there would be clearly an enormous public benefit were this process to be wikified. Although my preference would be for ExpressO to manage a centralized information clearinghouse, perhaps that type of command and control thinking is obsolete. So how about it. Do any of our readers know how to make a wiki for law review submission related information?

UPDATE: I’ve created a law review information wiki. (I feel like such a proud papa.) It is currently a stub, with links to the files we’ve posted here, and a skelatal outline. Our readers are encouraged to go onto the page and make it better.

    Thanks to Tony – that’s very helpful.

    Dave, I don’t think that your preference for Expresso is “command and control” thinking at all. It’s much easier to go to Expresso, upload the document once, and just click boxes for submission than it is to go to 50 different websites to upload your article. I think that from an author’s perspective, Expresso saves a lot of time.

    Here’s the part that seems to be missing – what are the advantages / disadvantages to the law reviews of Expresso versus submission on their individual website?

    You might consider integrating your new wiki with the effort that Michael Froomkin has sponsored:
