Call for Editors, Peer Reviewers, and Articles


The Religion & Law Review (RLR) was born to aid early scholars. The RLR is an academic space where articles, book reviews, blog posts, and other content explore the intersection between religion and law in an approachable, international, and interdisciplinary format. In particular, the Review will consist of a triannual publication of submitted articles from early scholars accepted through a double blind peer review process. Through a scholastic and faculty benefactor the RLR is able to offer prizes to the top two papers in our first publication. Upon the conferral of the Editorial Committee $100 will be awarded to the top paper and $50 for the runner-up. A Call for Papers will open on November 1st. See below and at our website www.religion.legal to join our editorial and peer review team before October 2nd.


Call for Editors

The RLR is looking to increase the size of our editorial team. The Editorial Committee and its members screen prospective articles, distribute manuscripts to peer reviewers, facilitate revisions from authors, and ultimately select which articles will reach final publication. The editorial team is committed to international and interdisciplinary diversity amongst its members. In its current form our editors are J.D. candidates on law reviews, DPhil candidates, rising seniors, and Masters students in disciplines from law, religious studies, international relations, and political science. We welcome early scholars with editorial and publication experience to apply for the Editorial Committee. For guidelines, extended details, and instructions see our Editor Application.

 All Applications for Editor Must Be Received In Full By October 2nd, 2016
