Submission Guidelines

Editorial Policy

The Water Law Review welcomes the submission of articles of timely interest to the water law community. Articles should discuss topical issues in water law and related areas, such as environmental and natural resource law, and land use. They should provide an original, analytical, and in-depth treatment of the issue rather than a summary of previous research efforts. Anonymous peer review of articles is available upon request. In addition to articles, the Water Law Review also invites submissions of shorter works, such as book reviews, commentaries, and bibliographies.


Manuscripts considered for publication must be typed, double-spaced, and formatted to fit on 8 ½ x 11 paper. The text should be broken into appropriate headings and subheadings and should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed. 2010). Citations to references and authorities should be contained in footnotes. Footnotes may also include elaboration on points raised in the text or references to research sources pertaining to points peripheral to those discussed in the text. Footnotes must conform to the rules included in The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed. 2010), published by the Harvard Law Review Association. Footnotes should be current as of the date of submission.


The Water Law Review will accept submissions at any time. For consideration for publication in the spring journal, submissions should be received by November 1 of the prior year. For consideration for publication in the fall journal, submissions should be received by August 1.
