All students are encouraged to engage in original, scholarly research while at Michigan Law.
Students who produce publishable written work may consider uploading their polished drafts to the
Social Science Research Network (SSRN). SSRN is a working paper clearinghouse that ensures the timely dissemination of scholarship. Thousands of authors upload thousands of pieces every year, and SSRN is a common destination for those seeking the latest research on any topic. There is no cost to post working-paper versions of notes or articles to SSRN. Papers can be updated or removed later, although authors should exercise care to make sure their piece is in very good shape before distributing any written work through the Internet. Authors retain the copyright and are free to publish (or not publish) the work where, when, and how they see fit, including uploading the piece to another online repository (such as a specialty website in a given field).
Published articles, too, may be uploaded to SSRN, unless prohibited by any copyright agreement the author may have with another publication venue. All published work appearing in the Law School’s official journals will be automatically uploaded to the
Michigan Law School Scholarship Repository.
