The Journal only publishes material written by its members. With the exception of submissions for the Farnsworth Competition, through which JLSP solicits Notes from all Columbia Law students, unsolicited manuscripts will not be accepted, returned, or acknowledged.
E. Allan Farnsworth Competition Information
The Journal considers student Notes from the entire Columbia Law student body (2Ls, 3Ls, and LLMs) during the annual Farnsworth Competition. As JLSP is a general-interest journal, Notes on any and all subject matter, written from any point of view, will be considered. Creativity and innovation are encouraged, as well as Notes involving original empirical research. Notes should be 25-50 double-spaced pages. Submissions should include a short synopsis (no more than two paragraphs), an explanation of how the Note makes a unique contribution to legal scholarship (no more than one paragraphs), and a thorough preemption memo that distinguishes similar scholarship.
The 2019 competition will begin in August 2019. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
