Senior Editors' First Cut

The second step in the Law Review's editing process is a first cut by our Senior Board. We are fortunate to get many submissions each year, often more than we can review in full depth. To cut that down, each member of the Senior Board is assigned a proportionate share of submitted articles and is asked only whether those articles could plausibly be published. If a submission fails to meet this relatively low bar, a second member of the Senior Board will be asked their opinion. If they also find the submission unpublishable, that submission will be rejected. Any submission which at least one Senior Board member thinks could be publishable proceeds to carriage.
