Arkansas Law Notes: History and Submission Guidelines

About Arkansas Law Notes

Arkansas Law Notes was first published in the mid-1980s as a paper-only journal of short articles written by the faculty of the University of Arkansas School of Law, and delivered to Arkansas lawyers. It has evolved over the years and is now the Arkansas Law Review’s exclusive online publication. Law Notes is positioned to deliver a quick publication turnaround for timely, relevant scholarship relating to current Arkansas and national legal issues. Arkansas Law Notes features short essays and responses by law professors, judges, practicing lawyers, scholars from other disciplines, and current law students. Submissions may respond to recent articles and essays published in the Arkansas Law Review or comment on topics ranging from emerging legal issues arising from litigation, recent court opinions or government policies and procedures.
