Student Work
All current Georgetown Law students and recent graduates until the September following graduation may submit for online publication case comments, other short articles, or notes. Submissions should be fewer than 4,000 words in length with fewer than 1,250 words in footnotes. The Georgetown Law Journal Online will also consider longer student notes on a case-by-case basis.


Submissions will be reviewed via a selection process that includes evaluation of the relevance of the topic to Washington, D.C. (including the Supreme Court, federal agencies, and Congress), the timeliness of the issue discussed, the novelty of the author’s argument and analysis, the appeal of the topic to a generalist legal audience, and compliance with current Bluebook standards.


Interested students should submit a copy of their comment, short article, or note with personal identifying information removed to Jarrett Colby, Senior Online Editor, Students can submit work at any time and selections are made seasonally by the Journal‘s Online Committee.
