Journal Guidelines

General

The Journal of Law and Technology at Texas (JOLTT) welcomes unsolicited essays, articles, and blog posts from judges, academics, practicing lawyers, and law students.

The Journal prefers electronic submissions that are editable as word documents. Authors are encourage to submit, along with their article or essay, a resume/C.V. and abstract.

Length

For the traditional print publications the Journal prefers articles and essays that are approximately 12,000 words in length, including footnotes. Articles with less or more than 12,000 words are by no means disqualified. This number serves purely as a reference for the Journal’s process in determining whether a particular article merits publication. The Journal strongly encourages submissions fewer than 25,000 words in length, including footnotes.

For digital articles and blog posts, the Journal prefers submissions approximately 2,500 words in length, including footnotes. As with articles, this number serves purely as a reference.

Form

Submissions should cite all sources used as footnotes, not as endnotes or in-text citations, though endnotes are encouraged to help format digital articles and blog posts. All citations should conform to latest edition of Bluebook and Greenbook. Authors should also adhere to standard rules of style and grammar. 

For all submissions, please send relevant files to eic@jolttx.com or contact us directly for more information.
