About Article Submissions

The Denver Law Review Forum publishes articles year-round on a rolling basis. Articles may be submitted directly to the Senior Forum Editor, Charlotte Rhoad, at, or through our Forum Scholastica account. We accept submissions from professors and practitioners under our three content clicks: National Stage, Tenth Circuit Roundup, and Stakeholders' Platform. While we review any submission, we are targeting thoughtful content with a focus on diversity and equity in the law and those affected by the law.

National Stage

Comment notes on current issues of law and policy recently addressed or pending before the Supreme Court or Congress. This includes: any cases published in the past judicial cycle, any cases that could or will be decided in the upcoming judicial cycle, or legislation passed or proposed by the 118th Congress. 

10th Circuit Roundup

Comment notes on current issues of law and policy recently addressed by or pending before the Colorado Supreme Court, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, the Colorado General Assembly, or issued by executive order.

Stakeholders' Platform

This series focuses on the effects of law and policy on Diverse Coloradans. Authorship by legal professionals, non-legal professionals, and affinity groups affected by the law is preferred. Responsive and innovative pieces are encouraged. 



Articles may be submitted electronically or through hard-copy format. Electronic submissions should be sent directly to the Senior Forum Editor, Charlotte Rhoad, at, or through Scholastica

The Denver Law Review Forum accepts submissions and publishes pieces year-round. We invite article submissions from professors, practitioners, judges, and law clerks. We do not consider article submissions from unaffiliated law students.

While it depends on the submission, pieces may be published within two months of acceptance.

  1. Submissions should range between 4,000 and 11,000 words without footnotes.
