Berkeley Business Law Journal is now open to new article submissions through our Scholastica submission portal. We look forward to receiving your article.

Submit an Article for Publishing

The Berkeley Business Law Journal (BBLJ) invites the submission of unsolicited manuscripts for its fall and spring issues. Submissions may include previously unpublished articles, essays, case notes, or comments concerning any aspect of the relationship between business and the law. The BBLJ traditionally publishes “Law Review” type pieces but submissions of all kinds are welcome.

The best times for submission are as follows:

  • Fall Edition: September.
  • Spring Edition: January–February. (The BBLJ understands that the “peak” submissions period in the spring usually runs through March. However, the BBLJ prefers its articles to be submitted earlier in the process to  accommodate Berkeley’s academic schedule.)

Submission Method

  • Preferred method: Scholastica
  • Please submit electronic manuscripts, author CV, author contact information, cover letter, and other materials relevant for consideration of an article.
  • The BBLJ discourages submission via email. Please contact if you are unable to submit via Scholastica.
