Call for Papers Kentucky Law Journal


Kentucky Law Journal Online publishes short articles on various topics of interest to practitioners, scholars, judges, and students. These articles should investigate legal issues in a scholarly way, but need not be as heavily cited as the articles traditionally published in print journals.  The online forum provides a perfect outlet for authors of shorter articles who wish to quickly attract a larger, international audience and foster public commentary or debate about their pieces.

Word Limit: Typically, online articles are 5,000 words or less, do not exceed 60 footnotes.

Citation:  The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed. 2010).  

The Kentucky Law Journal Online has issued a call for papers in the areas of intellectual property or Internet law.

Articles are welcome which embark upon an analysis and commentary on a wide range of legal topics:

  • recent court rulings and judicial opinions;
  • national or international trends in the legal profession;
  • intersections between the legal profession and other fields of study, including media communication, healthcare, public policy, economics, education, religion, or social sciences, etc.; or
  • issues currently affecting the practice of law in Kentucky.

Note:  Online articles are not limited to Kentucky law.

Submissions will be selected for online publication by members of the KLJ Editorial Board. The deadline for submissions is rolling, as new articles will be published regularly throughout the academic year.
