Although much commentary covers the peculiar American institution of the student-edited law review, the literature fails to develop detailed norms governing author and journal conduct during the submission process. This essay sets out a Model Code of Conduct for journal submissions. It addresses all phases of the submission process, from pre-submission journal disclosures to post-acceptance conduct. The hope is that the rules contained in the Model Code will spur norm development in an area badly in need of guidance. This paper is coauthored with Jacob Hirsch, the current Executive Articles Editor of Hastings Law Journal.
