Write For Us!

Law & Space accepts a wide variety of short blog-style articles written with academic integrity but intended for a broad audience.

We are particularly interested in the following:

  • short summaries of ongoing research projects
  • contributions from current graduate students
  • summaries of your own recent academic publications written for a broad audience
  • explanations or discussions of key topics in legal geography
  • application of legal geography concepts to timely public issues
  • book reviews
  • conference-related announcements and calls for papers
  • profiles of important figures and thinkers in legal geography

Submissions do not have a word limit, but we aim for articles that are between 500 and 1,200 words. Our tone is intelligent but readable, with short, punchy paragraphs, selective citations, and a clear lede that will attract academic and non-academic readers alike.

If you would like to publish a post through Law & Space, reach out directly to the editorial team at lawandspacejournal[at]gmail.com or Austin Kocher at ackocher[at]syr.edu.

Pitches are encouraged rather than full submissions. Questions are always welcome!
