FAMU Law Review seeks Articles, Notes, Comments, and Short Essays for publication in its print journal, as well as on our website.
Articles are generally written by law professors, judges or practitioners. Articles discuss legal problems or complexities, and usually express the author’s thoughts and solutions to such problems.
Notes and Comments are usually written by law students, are considerably shorter than Articles, and are related to the law in some fashion. Topics are wide-ranging, and may be contemporary or historical in nature.
Essays are generally four to seven pages, and can be written by anyone. They address current topics in the law in a brief manner, and are meant to advance an idea or summarize an area of law, as well as stimulate discussion on a legal topic. These pieces are lightly footnoted, and have easy readability for a wide audience.
