The editorial board seeks articles that demonstrate exemplary academic research and legal thinking on the implications of emerging trends in the energy and climate change fields. Newly emerging topics, technologies and legislation are of particular interest. The San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law (JCEL) welcomes manuscripts from legal practitioners, legislative personnel, jurists and academic professors. In addition to the JCEL's print circulation, articles will receive supplemental exposure on USD School of Law’s website where electronic versions of the articles’ abstracts will be posted and indexed. The editorial board is now receiving and reviewing articles for the 2017-18 issue.

Manuscripts are accepted year-round and are promptly reviewed within one week. If the manuscript is approved, the author will be contacted promptly with an offer. Please note: During December 1-15, 2017 and April 26-May 11, 2018, our editors will be in the midst of finals. Any articles or expedited requests received during these times will be reviewed after finals are completed.
