Expedited Review Requests


Requests for expedited reviews must be made either through Scholastica, or by email to the Executive Article Selection Editor, Samuel Walenz. These requests should be clearly marked for expedited review and specify a deadline.

The Law Review prefers initial review deadlines that allow at least seven to ten days to conduct a review. The Law Review will assume that the review window will remain open until 5:00 p.m. EST on the specified date unless otherwise indicated in the expedited review request. Follow-up expedites should not shorten the deadline considerably. Requests that allow less time may be reviewed more briefly or may not be reviewed at all, as workload and circumstances dictate.

The Law Review treats expedite requests as firm deadlines in the order in which they are received. If unable to meet an expedited review deadline, the Law Review will generally cease further consideration of the piece.
