Thank you for considering submitting your article to the Concordia Law Review. The Concordia Law Review staff looks forward to reading your work. We review and accept articles year-round on a rolling basis.

Electronic Submissions

To increase the efficiency of the review process, please submit manuscripts through ExpressO or as an email attachment to Articles Editors at lawreview@cu-portland.edu. Submissions should be in Microsoft Word format. If you email your submission, please submit one double-spaced copy of your manuscript, an abstract, a curriculum vitae, and a cover letter that sets forth the word count and your contact information.

Paper Submissions

Electronic submissions are preferred, but paper submissions are also accepted. Please include your e-mail address with your submission, as decisions will be transmitted via e-mail. Please send manuscripts to:

The Concordia Law Review strongly prefers articles that are 25,000 words or less including text and footnotes (roughly ninety double-spaced pages) in length. The length of the article will be a factor in the selection policy.


Footnotes (not endnotes) that conform to the Twentieth Edition of The Bluebook.


The Concordia Law Review staff is currently reviewing submissions from law professors, legal practitioners and jurists, and students. The Concordia Law Review is also weighing submissions from undergraduate and graduate professors writing on law-related topics. The Concordia Law Review reviews submissions from student authors on a space-available basis.

Our editors always seek to review articles within a few weeks after receiving them, but it may take longer to reach a decision when submission volumes are high. If we are unable to extend a publication offer, we will notify the author promptly.

The Concordia Law Review contacts our authors immediately when the Board decides to extend an offer. We customarily allow the author no less than ten days to decide whether to accept an initial offer. If the author needs additional time to decide whether to accept an offer of publication, we will likely grant an extension. If, however, an offer is made pursuant to an expedited review of the article, the Board customarily allows the author seven days to accept and does not grant extensions.

Once you accept an offer of publication from the Concordia Law Review, we expect you to withdraw your article from all other law reviews. You will receive an instruction letter, a copyright/licensing agreement, and a request to forward an electronic copy of your article.

We appreciate if you are able to let us know if you decided to withdraw your article from consideration. You may do this through your ExpressO submissions page or by email.
