Process

A panel comprised of JOLT staff members will carefully review each submission and contact all authors when publication decisions are made. JOLT is on a biannual publication timetable. If a submission is selected for publication, JOLT will request that the author sign an agreement granting JOLT electronic publication rights to the article. The author will retain all other publication rights and may submit the article to other law journals that print in hard-copy format only.
