Guide linesThe Law Review will publish articles, case comments, and book reviews. The submitted text will first be read by the Editor-in-Chief, and if deemed of academic standards will be sent for peer-review. Upon review, the evaluator will either recommend the publication because of its contribution to the advancement of knowledge in the field of language law or will explain why it should not be published. In such a case, it will be sent to the author(s) with the evaluator's comments. If approved, the text will be formatted and published.
The Language Law Review will mainly publish articles in French but will also accept to publish a few articles in another language, as long as the ratio does not exceed 20% of the published articles in a year, and that they are accompanied preferably by a French or English abstract. The Law Review reserves the right to make grammar corrections, as well as modifications to the form of the text and references. There will be no substantial modifications made to the text without the author's consent.
