The Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Law Journal, the quarterly scholarly publication of the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section, is committed to the publication of articles that present analysis and insight into issues affecting the broad scope of tort and insurance law and practice. The Journal welcomes original articles dealing with current and emerging issues of national scope from members of the bar.
Feature articles traditionally are between 10,000 and 15,000 words, or 50 to 60 double-spaced pages in length. Depending on the topic and depth of focus, the Journal also accepts some shorter articles. The writing should be appropriate for a law review article. All references must be completely and accurately cited using the citation style of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, 20th Edition. Other important requirements: (1) include a brief description of your current professional affiliation, (2) use consecutively numbered footnotes rather than embedded citations, (3) number pages, (4) italicize rather than underline, (5) use Word, and (6) submit the manuscripts as e-mail attachments. Simultaneous submission of manuscripts to other publications is discouraged and must be brought to the attention of the editor-in-chief of the Journal. Unless otherwise clearly noted, all manuscripts are expected to be original. All articles accepted for publication will be checked carefully for unauthorized use of copyrighted material.
Authors are asked to sign a copyright agreement that grants to the ABA the exclusive right of first publication, the nonexclusive right to reprint, and the right to use the work in other ABA media—including electronic and print.
Manuscripts should be sent as e-mail attachments to Julie Furgerson, Managing Editor, firstname.lastname@example.org.
No compensation is paid for published articles.
Requests to reprint or republish material from the Journal should be sent to email@example.com.
