Formatting Guidelines 

Recently, Harvard Law Review conducted a survey of legal scholars regarding the length of articles published in law periodicals and issued a joint statement with other leading law reviews in an effort to reduce the length of articles. We support this policy. We strongly prefer articles under 35,000 words (including footnotes), and will give preference to articles under 25,000 words. We will continue to publish manuscripts over 35,000 words if the length is merited. We encourage the submission of essays (manuscripts of approximately 10,000 words). When you submit your article, please include a word count in the cover letter.

The citations of the Tulane Law Review conform to THE BLUEBOOK: A UNIFORM SYSTEM OF CITATION (19th ed. 2010); M.A. Cunningham, Guide to Louisiana and Selected French Legal Materials and Citations, 67 Tul. L. Rev. 1305 (1993). 

On matters of style, the Tulane Law Review follows the guidelines set forth in THE GREGG REFERENCE MANUAL by William A. Sabin (10th ed. 2005). The Tulane Law Review follows these manuals except when common sense dictates otherwise. 

Production of the Tulane Law Review is achieved by utilizing Microsoft Word 2000 for Windows software to produce camera-ready proofs. The Tulane Law Review is printed by Joe Christensen, Inc., in Lincoln, Nebraska. 

Second-class postage paid at New Orleans, Louisiana, and additional mailing offices. Publication number ISSN 0041-3992.
