Guide to publishing in law reviews and other legal periodicals


Law Review Indexes

Your article will have a better chance of getting read by people in your field if you narrow your submissions to particular publications.

Washington and Lee Law Journal Rankings: A database that allows you to search for journals by a specific subject, among other criteria. For example, did you write an article about Family Law? Search for law reviews that focus primarily on Family Law and select how you wish them to be ranked. They can be ranked by "Impact Factor," "Article Cites," "Currency Factor," "Case Cites," and/or "Combined Score." The top ranked law reviews in your area will be listed.
