The Journal uses Microsoft Word for all word-processing. Manuscripts must be submitted as Microsoft Word files. Documents created in WordPerfect (or any other non-Microsoft Word application) will not be reviewed. Manuscript submissions should be formatted in twelve-point Times New Roman font with 1-inch margins on all sides. Footnotes should be single-spaced and numbered serially.
Criminal Law Manuscripts
Articles should ideally be of 15,000-25,000 words in length. While in extraordinary circumstances we will accept longer Articles, manuscripts of longer than 30,000 words in length are unlikely to be accepted for publication.
