The McGill Law Journal encourages scholars and practitioners to submit manuscripts of various types. The most common categories of submissions are:
Articles: Preference will be given to articles that do not exceed 20,000 words including footnotes. Authors should be advised that where submissions considerably exceed this length the Journal may require revision and re-submission before beginning the evaluation process. The Journal will not accept submissions that are either unfinished theses, preliminary drafts, or book chapters.
Book Reviews and Book Notes: Book reviews should not exceed 5,000 words including footnotes, and book notes should not exceed 1,000 words including footnotes.
Case Comments: Case comments should not exceed 10,000 words including footnotes.
