Submission Strategies: Expedite Requests

Keep deadlines in expedite requests reasonable

Expedite Requests

Submission Tip #4
A sure-fire way to damage a submission is to ask a law review to decide on a paper in an unreasonable timeframe. One week is the minimum; two weeks is standard. Only send follow-up requests to report any new offer if it is:
1) from a better law review, or
2) extends the decision deadline.
