This site from the Law Library at the Washington and Lee School of Law is a resource "for identifying law journals by subject, country of publication, or ranking (where available), and to provide additional information to facilitate comparing and contacting the journals listed."
Maintained by Allen Rostron and Nancy Levit, this publication provides "information about submitting articles to law reviews and journals, including the methods for submitting an article, any special formatting requirements, how to contact them to request an expedited review, and how to contact them to withdraw an article from consideration." It focuses on general rather than specialty journals.
Maintained by Michael Goodyear, this publication "contains charts with information about submitting articles to specialty (non-flagship) law journals at ABA-accredited law schools in the United States, including links to the journal's page, the accepted methods for submitting an article, special formatting or length requirements, whether the journal accepts outside student submissions, and whether the journal offers any non-traditional publishing options."
