BC Studies welcomes submissions of case comments that seek to interpret, in relatively few words and clear prose, the significance and importance of recent legal decisions affecting British Columbia.
Case comments should focus on one decision from any level of court or administrative tribunal and should aim to situate that decision in a broader historical, social, political, or economic context. They should be written in a manner that is accessible to an informed, general audience.
Case comments should be no more than 3,000 words. Manuscripts must be double spaced and text and footnote style of non-legal sources should follow The Chicago Manual of Style. Citations of legal sources should follow the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, 6th Edition (the McGill Guide).
BC Studies accepts manuscript submissions online through the Open Journal System (OJS). You must first register as an author and then follow the submission instructions.
