The mission of The Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law, the official quarterly publication of the Forum on Affordable Housing and Community Development Law of the American Bar Association, is to provide information on programs related to affordable housing and community development law, facilitate communication among housing lawyers, and provide a clearinghouse for the exchange of ideas and solutions in the field.
Article Length. Feature articles traditionally are between 5,000 and 7,500 words, or 20 - to - 25 double-spaced pages in length. The Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law also accepts some shorter articles.
Style. The writing should be brisk and straightforward. Authors should use a style that is readable and more informal than a law review article. To that end, authors should

- Avoid using a foreign phrase, scientific word, or jargon if you can think of a more common English equivalent

Footnotes. Use endnotes rather than footnotes. Include footnotes at the end of your article. The Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law follows the citation style of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, Eighteenth Edition.
