CFP: Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law

American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law

American University’s Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law is accepting paper submissions for upcoming issues.

You can submit your article for consideration by email to, or through Scholastica. The Journal accepts submissions on a wide variety of topics and subjects within the legal field. We are interested in topics about disability law, racial justice and the law, constitutional issues, gender-based legal issues, health law, LGBTQIA+ issues within the legal system, and other related topics. To see our past publications, please visit and Westlaw for a complete list.


However, please note we do not accept articles written by law students. We look for articles that present new legal arguments or perspectives about timely legal issues relating to U.S. laws directly or comparatively. There should also be substantial legal analysis throughout the piece. We prefer 15,000 words more or less, including at least 150 footnotes. Generally, we evaluate articles depending on many factors such as the strength of the argument, novelty, complexity, policy considerations, and whether the overall topic(s) falls within the Journal’s subject area.
