HBLR Print Submissions

HBLR stands at the intersection of law and business and is committed to publishing research and commentary on a wide range of developments in business and commercial law. HBLR welcomes submissions from all members of the business law community, including students, academics, practitioners, regulators, and lawmakers.

We are currently soliciting content for our current issue as well as future issues.

How to Submit

We strongly prefer that authors submit their articles in Microsoft Word format through ExpressO. Additionally, please use ExpressO to keep us updated about your article’s availability and any competing offer deadlines. We will also consider articles sent via email to submissions@hblr.org. Submissions without a resume or CV will not be reviewed. Cover letters are optional but preferred.

Length Limitations

We welcome both full length articles and shorter notes; however, HBLR strongly prefers articles under 25,000 words in length – the equivalent of 50 law review pages – including text and footnotes.

Citation Format

Manuscript citations must conform to the most recent edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.

Review Process

HBLR carefully reviews all submissions that it receives and notifies authors of decisions via email. If you would like to request an expedited review of your article, please indicate this desire upon submission. We appreciate your interest in publishing with us and look forward to your submissions.
