The Harvard Journal on Legislation is now accepting student submissions for its next volume. A statement of interest is due by Thursday, December 20 and a full draft is due by Wednesday, January 23. Statements of interest should be submitted here:

JOL will consider articles on any policy or legislation-related issue. We welcome submissions on a wide range of topics — law, policy, politics, history — as long as the subject matter will be of interest to policymakers. The journal is looking for two types of student writing: longer, more formal pieces to be published as Student Notes in the journal and shorter pieces for online publication.

JOL will work with you to organize and develop your writing into the final article. If you have a final paper from class, this can be a great opportunity to turn it into published work.

You can read more about the process at We look forward to your submissions! Questions about submissions or the process to submit can be directed to
