Focus & Scope
The Lakehead Law JournalÂ invites the submission of articles, case comments, book reviews, and book notes authored by students, academics, and legal practitioners. The LLJ has two annual deadlines of 15th August and 15th of January for submission of articles and will consider submissions on a rolling basis. The LLJ publishes two volumes per year. Please also note that as a student operated journal a smaller editorial team is in place during the summer months and response times will vary accordingly.
The LLJÂ prefers articles that are no longer than 7000 words, including footnotes. Submitted case comments should be no longer than 4000 words, including footnotes. Submitted book reviews and book notes should be no longer than 2000 words, including footnotes. Submissions of exceptional quality that vary from the preferred length may be considered for publication at the discretion of the Editorial Team.
The LLJÂ accepts electronic submissions. Authors can make electronic submissions by creating an AuthorÂ account on this Online Journal System. Alternatively, if you would prefer to send your submission by email, please send your submission as a word document to the Lakehead Law Journal at firstname.lastname@example.org.Â
