Call for Book Reviews for the Michigan Law Review 2011 Annual Survey of Books Related to the Law


The Michigan Law Review publishes an Annual Survey of Books dedicated to book reviews. Book reviews are not included in any other issue of the Michigan Law Review. The Survey includes reviews of books published in the current year and the past two years. So, for example, the 2011 Survey, which will be published in April 2011, will include reviews of books published in 2011, 2010, and 2009.

The Book Review Office welcomes unsolicited submissions. Proposal guidelines can be downloaded here. Manuscripts and draft sections to accompany the proposal are appreciated. Please note that all Book Review proposals, drafts, and manuscripts must be submitted via email to Decisions for the upcoming year’s issue are generally made between March and May.

Please note that we require that finished drafts be no more than 8,500 words, including footnotes. We believe that this is the ideal length for an interesting and useful book review. It will also assist us in making our survey of the many fascinating and important books related to the law that have been published in the past few years as comprehensive as possible.

To request an expedited decision or to contact the Book Review Editors, please email or call (734) 647‑4072.
