Rutgers Law Review Commentaries is the online companion of Rutgers Law Review. We aim to publish scholarly works from practitioners, judges, students, and scholars, as well as responses to previously published Commentaries. These articles may include case comments, practitioner guides, essays, book reviews, and op-eds.

Commentaries will be published on a rolling basis, and articles will be selected for publication by a committee of Law Review members. Generally, articles published online will be 2,000 words or fewer. Longer articles, however, will be considered for publication. Commentaries must conform to traditional legal journal standards but may be lightly footnoted.

Submissions and questions can be sent electronically to:
