The Tax Lawyer endeavors to provide scholarly articles on topics pertaining to taxation and other information that it believes to be of professional interest to members of the Section of Taxation of the American Bar Association and other readers.
The Tax Lawyer welcomes the submission of articles written by admitted members of the bar and by other professionals. Manuscripts by candidates for graduate degrees in law (e.g., LL.M. or M.L.T.) will be considered only if the author is admitted to the bar at the time of submission.
Accepted manuscripts are generally between 12,000 to 35,000 words, though exceptions are occasionally made for longer articles on a case-by-case basis.
Although utmost care will be given to materials submitted, The Tax Lawyer does not accept responsibility for unsolicited manuscripts. Guidelines for submissions:
- Submit as e-mail attachment in MS Word. Please use standard formatting and fonts.
- Please include a table of contents and brief abstract of your article with your submission (we recommend not exceeding 500 words). Your abstract should not include footnotes, disclaimers, or urls.
- Please include 5-10 keywords or phrases, including relevant Internal Revenue Code sections.
- A copy of your CV is encouraged but not required.
