Thank you for your interest in submitting a book review to The National Law Journal.
Most of the book reviews we run are assigned by us to regular reviewers. If you are interested in reviewing books for us, please send a resume, along with a list of the kinds of books you'd like to review, to Assistant Managing Editor Ruth Singleton at firstname.lastname@example.org. On rare occasions, we will accept an unassigned review, but it is our preference to make the assignments.
Reviewers should not have a professional or personal relationship with the book's author. If you have a slight acquaintance with the author, please let us know the circumstances, and we will determine whether it would be appropriate for you to review his or her book.
Reviews should provide an overview of the book's subject, but also express an opinion on it. The book's style, approach, documentation, educational value and entertainment value are all elements worthy of comment.
The target length is 750 words. Reviews may be submitted as either Word or WordPerfect documents.
We will consult the author about substantive changes to the copy. We reserve the right to copy edit and to make alterations based on The National Law Journal style or space constraints without notice to the author.
Before publication, we usually send galley proofs to the author for review. When responding, please be prompt, and address substantive changes only; this is not the time to raise style questions or add new material.
