Means of Submission

The Environmental Law and Policy Review welcomes submissions via ExpressO or by email. The Submissions Committee begins to consider submissions, both solicited and unsolicited, for the next volume in February.

Contents of Submissions

Prospective authors must forward:

  1. A copy of the manuscript, and
  2. A curriculum vitae that details the author’s history of education, employment, and publication.

A cover letter is recommended but is not necessary.

Submission Guidelines

Please note that the Environmental Law and Policy Review does not publish book reviews, nor do we publish student notes by current law students who are not members of the ELPR’s staff.

We look forward to receiving and reviewing your future submissions. Should you have any questions about our submissions process, please feel free to contact ELPR.

Expedited Review

Authors who wish to request expedited review should send an e-mail to the Environmental Law and Policy Review at or call the office at (757) 221-3799. Please include the circumstances warranting the request (e.g., receipt of another offer) and a proposed deadline for expedited review. The volume of submissions often precludes granting each request, but the Submissions Committee makes every effort to accommodate requests when possible.
