4 Features of Online Supplements The Columbia Law Reviews Sidebar is committed to publishing responses to scholarship that appears in the Reviews print edition, as well as original pieces addressing pressing and dynamic legal issues. The criteria for Sidebar publication are consistent with the Reviews standards as a leading source of legal scholarship. Given that Sidebars purpose is to provide an online forum for legal discussion from a variety of perspectives, we strongly encourage authors to limit their submissions to 3,000-6,000 words (including footnotes). Submissions should also conform to the 19th Edition of the Bluebook, and appear in Microsoft Word format. Sidebar pieces are published throughout the year on a continuous basis. Published content is available on Westlaw, in addition to being permanently available online in pdf format.
