The Michigan Technology Law Review (MTLR) invites all professors, attorneys, government officials, industry participants, and other individuals active in the field of technology law and policy to submit scholarly articles and essays for publication. MTLR is a light-edit law review and prefers submissions between 15,000 and 30,000 words in length, including footnotes. Current and recent Michigan Law students are also invited to submit student notes for publication.


MTLR accepts submissions on a rolling basis and publishes semi-annually. Submissions are currently open for Fall 2024 and Spring 2025.


MTLR strongly prefers to receive submissions of articles and essays through Scholastica. Alternatively, persons interested in submitting a piece for publication should send a copy of the manuscript and a resume or letter of introduction electronically (preferably in Microsoft Word format with a .doc extension) to mich.tech.law.rev@umich.edu.
