Rutgers University Law Review Commentaries is the online companion of the Rutgers University Law Review. We aim to publish scholarly works from practitioners, judges, students, and scholars, as well as responses to previously published commentaries and articles. These articles may include case comments, practitioner guides, essays, book reviews, and op-eds.

Commentaries will be published on a rolling basis, and will be selected for publication by a committee of Law Review members. Generally, commentaries will be 5,000 words or fewer. Longer submissions, however, will be considered for publication. Commentaries must conform to traditional legal journal standards but may be lightly footnoted.
