Writing Guidelines

We welcome your submissions to The Pillar!
When submitting an article, please follow the guidelines below.
Writing Guidelines:
  • Digital format: Submit articles in a .doc or .docx format and attach your image files
  • Block style: Don't indent paragraphs
  • Left justify: Don't "full" justify your article; fully justifying doesn't work well for the Web
  • One space: Use one space between sentences
  • Normal characters: Don't use symbols or footnotes
  • Serial commas: Use an Oxford comma (serial or series comma) since law students use it
    • Example: Law students write letters, memos, and briefs.
  • Your own style: We don't edit a writer's content or style
  • Our editing: We edit errors or inconsistencies that are obvious
