Editorial Policy

We will publish only those works which provide practical benefit to a general legal audience, and include a significant component addressing topics of social and/or environmental justice. Without imposing any length limitation, WJSEJ recognizes the growing trend toward efficient works and will attempt to avoid those exceeding 60 formatted pages.

WJSEJ conforms to conventions established by the latest edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, and the style recommendations articulated in the latest editions of The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style and The Chicago Manual of Style. We follow the spellings of Webster’s Third New International Dictionary and the latest edition of Black’s Law Dictionary.

Factual statements, direct quotations and paraphrasing, legal references, and any other assertion not flowing logically from a foundation of sound premises and argumentation must all be supported by a credible citation. It is our policy to limit editorial feedback. However, our editors will recommend changes to improve clarity, persuasiveness, and grammatical and clerical accuracy. All recommendations will be preserved for author review; no change will be made without author approval.
