The Criminal Law Practitioner (CLP) currently seeks manuscript submissions for Volume 14 Issue 2  and Volume 15 Issue 1 of our print publication, respectively published in August 2024 and January 2025. The deadline to submit manuscripts is September 24, 2023. The CLP Editorial Board will communicate with all authors by October 6, 2023. (Note: CLP will tentatively accept and review manuscripts for Volume 15 again in February 2024). Any changes to this schedule will be communicated to interested authors. 

CLP is the criminal law publication at American University Washington College of Law, and one of the few in the Washington D.C. area. We curate our online and print content to speak directly to practitioners on timely and relevant matters within criminal law. We are interested in publishing a wide range of topics relating to criminal law, especially those that communicate their impact on practitioners. 

Manuscripts should be submitted with normal margins, double spacing, 12 pt. Times New Roman font, and footnotes. We accept submissions either on the Scholastica platform or via email at Please email the same if you are interested in featuring in a practitioner profile on our blog

If you have any questions, please email Jackie Solomon, the editor-in-chief, at Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to reviewing your submissions!
