Law Review Rankings

Law Review Rankings

The law review rankings are widely debated and the major factors for evaluating law reviews include: frequency of citation, prominance of the author, and the prestige of the law school. The following resources will help you decide where to submit your article:

Finding the Right Publication

SSRN

Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is devoted to the rapid distribution and sharing of research.  SSRN allows a scholar to quickly post and share research worldwide long before the paper if officially published.

Legal Scholarship is one of the fileds of scholarship and the resource can be used to:

  •    Conduct a preemptive search to see if there is a new working paper on your topic>
  •    Upload and share your new working paper.
  •    Subscribe to eJournals and receive email notices of new research

Contact:  Jane Underwood if you want a quick overview of the resource and/or you wish assistance in posting an article.
