Call for Papers

Cumberland Law Review Vol. 50

The Cumberland Law Review published the first issue in 1970. It is circulated in all fifty states and internationally. The Law Review’s subscribers include practicing attorneys and government, academics, and law libraries. Additionally, the Cumberland Law Review appears in electronic databases, including Westlaw and Lexis. As a testament to its quality, the Law Review has enjoyed citations by the Alabama Supreme Court, all twelve United States courts of appeals, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

On behalf of the Cumberland Law Review, the Acquisitions Committee is sponsoring a call for papers on Conflict of Law issues within the Eleventh Circuit. The objective of this call for papers is to solicit well-written articles from legal scholars and practitioners that will add value to the discussion surrounding these cutting-edge topics and issues.

Accepted papers will be published in the Cumberland Law Review, Volume 50, Issue II—our Spring 2020 issue—as well as published online by leading legal databases including LexisNexis, HeinOnline, and Westlaw. This quick turnaround allows the Law Review to ensure that certain time-sensitive articles do not become moot during the publication process.
Submission Guidelines

Papers should be no less than 25 pages and 150 footnotes, and no more than 60 pages and 400 footnotes. Papers should be formatted pursuant to academic literature standards. The Bluebook citation method should be utilized for footnote text. All submissions should be Microsoft Word files, double spaced, in Times New Roman font.
The Cumberland Law Review looks forward to receiving proposals in response to the call, and we are happy to respond to inquiries from interested parties.
