The Tax Law Review (TLR), the premier law school journal for tax policy scholarship, is one of the few faculty-edited journals in the legal academy. Under the current leadership of Professor Mitchell Kane, Editor-in-Chief, the TLR publishes articles and essays by leading legal academics and practitioners as well as noted economists. Article selection is determined by a Faculty Editorial Board comprised of full time tax law faculty at NYU. Although all substantive editing is undertaken by faculty members, there are opportunities for 2Ls, 3Ls, and LLMs to participate in the journal. Interested students should contact the Editor-in-Chief regarding application procedures.
The Tax Law Review publishes two issues annually. The Tax Law Review strongly prefers electronic submission through ExpressO. Although we have no minimum or maximum page requirements for submissions, we do have a strong preference for submissions that are 30,000 words or less, including text and footnotes. The TLR accepts most articles during the March and August submission seasons, but will consider manuscripts at any time.
To request expedited review of an article, please do so via ExpressO. Note that due to the high volume of these requests and the fact that acceptance of an article requires multiple faculty reads, review of an article by a particular deadline may not be possible.
