Notes and Comments are shorter pieces (of around 5,000 words). These have a narrower scope of inquiry than articles and may include analysis of recent case law, legislation or policy.

Successful submissions to this category will engage substantively with the ideas and themes explored in the book instead of merely providing a summary of its main arguments.
