The Journal is committed to providing a forum for alternative voices to be heard in legal discourse. As one of the leading women's law journals in the nation, we are especially interested in publishing pieces that recognize the unique concerns of communities that traditionally have been denied a voice in legal discourse. Thus, we seek articles, commentaries, essays, personal narratives, works of fictions and poetry, and book reviews that address issues of gender and that present a new and critical view on such issues.

We encourage you to become part of the Hastings Women's Law Journal by submitting an article for publication. If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact us at hwljsubmissions@gmail.com. Manuscripts should be submitted by email attachment in Microsoft Word .doc or .docx format along with an abstract and a CV. Citations should conform to the rules of A Uniform System of Citation (The Bluebook, 19th ed. 2010). 

All articles copyright by Hastings College of the Law except when otherwise expressly indicated. For permission to reprint an article or any portion thereof, or questions regarding reproduction of articles, please address inquiries to O'Brien Center for Scholarly Publications. 

The Journal is indexed, in its entirety, in Current Law Index and Index to Legal Periodicals, and may be found on Westlaw and Lexis-Nexis . 

We look forward to hearing from you.
