C|M|LAW Student Gets Published (and so can you!)

Recent C|M|LAW graduate David Sporar recently published an article,For Their Own Good:  Trading Children’s Fourth Amendment Rights for Treatment at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court 29 Child. Legal Rts. J. 24(2009)  (link is via HeinOnline).   The article was inspired by David’s experience working with children at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Drug Court.

If you are a student interested in getting published,  take a look at the library’s Getting Published Guide.   Students can use the ExpressO electronic submission service at a cost of $2.00 per law review.  There are also several free submission services listed in the guide, as well as other useful information.

You may also want to look at the recent article, Submission of Law Student Articles for Publication on SSRN.  Among other useful information it contains a chart of the policies of 194 law reviews with respect to whether they will publish comments submitted by non-law review members who are students at their home school or notes, comments or articles submitted by law students from other schools.
