On behalf of the Cumberland Law Review, the Acquisitions Committee invites leading scholars, judges, and practitioners to submit written work to be featured in Volume 55 of the Cumberland Law Review. Volume 55 will be composed of two issues to be published during the 2024–25 academic year. The Law Review is committed to publishing high-quality work that is concise, well-reasoned, and will add value to discussions surrounding novel and complex topics in the law and law-related fields.

The Cumberland Law Review is the flagship legal journal at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. It published its first issue in 1970, and today it is circulated in all fifty states and internationally. The Law Review’s subscribers include practicing lawyers, members of the government, academicians, and law libraries. As a testament to its quality, the Law Review has enjoyed citations by the Supreme Court of the United States, all twelve United States courts of appeals, and the Alabama Supreme Court.

As the new Board of Editors has been selected for Volume 55, the main reviewing period has begun and will continue until publication spaces are filled. Accepted papers will be published in the 55th Volume of the Cumberland Law Review as well as online by leading legal databases including LexisNexis, HeinOnline, and Westlaw. 


The Cumberland Law Review looks forward to receiving proposals in response to the call, and we are happy to respond to inquiries from interested parties. Questions may be addressed to our Acquisitions Editor, Brian C. Belveal, at Please put “Call for Papers Inquiry” in the subject line to ensure a prompt response. Thank you for your interest in the Cumberland Law Review. We look forward to reviewing your submissions and working with you in the future.
