Print Edition

Submitting Your Manuscript:

The Journal of Intellectual Property Law invites the submission of unsolicited articles, comments, and reviews from scholars, judges, researchers, and practicing attorneys discussing issues relevant to intellectual property law. In particular, articles may address any of the following topics: patent law, trademark, copyright, trade secrets, Internet law, technology law, and entertainment and sports law. In an effort to highlight as many of our own students as possible, the Journal does not regularly publish articles submitted by students of other law schools.

Citations in manuscripts should follow The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (21st ed. 2020).

Publication Frequency:

The Journal publishes two print editions annually. The Journal’s fall publication process begins in mid-August, and the spring publication process begins in early January. Although the Journal accepts submissions throughout the year, the Journal’s publication offers usually are made at the beginning of each semester’s publication process. The Journal encourages authors to keep this in mind when submitting articles for publication in a particular edition.
