Extra Legal

Extra Legal is the Northeastern University Law Journal's online counterpart. Extra Legal is aimed at publishing legal commentaries that support legal professionals and facilitate on-going discussion of emerging legal issues. We will post articles that provide practical value explaining the law, take bold stances on the state of the law, and pose thoughtful questions on emerging issues. Please check back for recent postings!

If you are interested in writing an Extra Legal article please fill out the proposal form linked below and send it as an attachment to extralegal@nulj.org. Feel free to contact the editors at the same address before submitting the proposal if you have any questions. 

Articles should be approximately 2,000 words—and not exceeding 2,500 words. The format is less formal than a note in a print law review. Footnotes are required when citing another person's work, but we also want to ensure that your voice comes through and that your opinion is known. All articles will undergo multiple plagiarism checks, the first of which takes place immediately upon receipt of the first draft.
