Fordham Urban Law Journal Call for Submissions for Issue on Knick v. Township of Scott

Posted by Senior Articles Editor, community karma 97
The Fordham Urban Law Journal is accepting articles and essays for Volume 47.3.  The Journal publishes themed Issues, this one focusing on the Supreme Court’s recent takings law decision in Knick v. Township of Scott.  We are looking for authors to respond to this decision overruling long established precedent, and to address what this case means for takings law and property rights going forward.  The Journal will also accept proposals and outlines on this topic.

The Fordham Urban Law Journal has a strong history of addressing legal and public policy issues affecting urban populations across the nation and throughout the world.  The Journal is the second-oldest publication and most-cited specialty journal at Fordham Law School.  The Journal is also the second-most cited public policy law journal edited by students in the country and is one of the few journals that focuses particularly on urban legal policy.  

Articles and essays for this Issue can examine any aspect of the Knick v. Township of Scott case.  We are striving to explore the topic from various angles and perspectives.  We hope authors will address the multitude of issues brought about in the wake of the Knick decision, including the impact on the takings doctrine and the practical effects on takings litigation going forward.  We are accepting both essays over 5,000 words, and articles over 10,000 words.  One-page abstracts will be due by September 6, 2019.

Articles or essays, as well as proposals and outlines, can be submitted through online platforms, such as Scholastica or Express-O, or by email directly to  Should you have any other inquiries, questions or concerns, please reach out to Maura Tracy, Senior Articles Editor, at
