Academics, practitioners, and judges are invited to submit articles and essays for publication. The Hispanic Journal of Law and Policy does not accept submissions from current students, with the exception of student Comments.
Specifically, Comments are pieces approximately 30 pages in length authored by The Hispanic Journal of Law and Policy students at South Texas College of Law Houston. Comments examine a timely and relevant discussion about a legal issue concerning the Hispanic community. Comments are selected for publication through a blind review process (please refer to the Policies and Procedures Manual).
How to Submit
The Hispanic Journal of Law and Policy will accept manuscript submissions electronically via:
All submissions must be accompanied by an updated Curriculum Vitae (CV). Articles must be in Microsoft Word or Word Perfect format when submitted. The Hispanic Journal of Law and Policy uses endnotes for citations. Please format all citations using The Bluebook’s guidelines.
Review of Submissions
Once a submission is received, the Editor-in-Chief will ensure compliance with the submission requirements. If a manuscript meets these requirements, the Editorial Board will then review the submission for publication. Authors will receive an offer letter with an articulated time frame the offer will remain valid through the manner in which the submission was received.
