AILA Logo Fastcase Logo

The AILA Law Journal delivers first-rate analysis and commentary on immigration law and policy.

Submission Guidelines: We will accept a diversity of submissions to support the theme of the 75th Anniversary of AILA. We will accept a variety of mediums including articles, tributes to former and current AILA leaders and attorneys, poems, and photographs. Articles should run 4,500–7,000 words, with citations. All contributions should be original. However, authors and columnists may reproduce their articles or pieces, and place them on their websites, with attribution to, and after publication in, the AILA Law Journal.

All articles and submissions must be submitted via email in Word or JPEG (if a picture), as an attachment. All charts, graphs, and tables should be typed or professionally typeset and must be submitted via email. Articles must appear as continuous prose, with full sentences, and should be appropriately supported by citations. Please use endnotes, rather than footnotes, and lead with primary sources, followed by secondary sources. All articles must adhere to Bluebook style.

Submissions should include a brief, clearly written author biography, author address, direct phone number, and email address. Authors should provide a two- or three-sentence summary of the article. Articles should be written in neutral, third-person voice. “You,” “I,” “We,” and similar terms are discouraged. However, submissions tailored to the 75th Anniversary that are personal, in the form of a poem, or dedication to a person, may include the first person.
