VJIL Digest Submissions

VJIL Digest accepts submissions of between 3,000 and 4,000 words from legal scholars, practitioners, and graduate degree candidates at any level, both from within and outside the University of Virginia.

Submissions must be written in English and may be either single or double-spaced. All citations must conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed., 2010). Authors should be prepared to supply any cited sources upon request from our editors.

VJIL Digest accepts submissions on a rolling basis, and we aim to evaluate pieces within fourteen days of receipt. Accepted essays will be placed on an expedited production schedule and will be published in a timely manner.

Submissions must be accompanied by a cover letter containing the author's e-mail address and a daytime telephone number. Résumés and other biographical information are optional but highly recommended.

Essays or print article responses may be sent to the Managing Editor of VJIL Digest at vjildigest@vjil.org. We also welcome submissions through our print journal's Scholastica account.
