As a digital platform, we publish a broad range of content – from short essays and thematic text primers to video interviews and podcasts – and engage the top minds in law and religion to produce accessible content for today’s readers. By providing accurate information, expert analysis, and contextualized explanation of issues impacting America and the world, Canopy Forum addresses the growing concern for an understanding of law and religion, bringing these issues to the forefront of American public discourse in an informed, nuanced, and productive way.

Canopy Forum accepts submissions on a rolling basis and currently soliciting a wide variety of scholarship, including religious and legal perspectives on…

current events, court cases, and legislation
legal theory and practice
religious trends
law and religion in historical contexts
religious freedom and human rights
thematic series and calls for submissions
and more…

Essay submissions should be approximately 1,200 words in length and written in a sophisticated, but generally accessible style. While some references are welcome, extensive footnotes are discouraged, as is overly academic prose that would make your work inaccessible to general educated readers. We also consider mixed and multimedia proposals, including photo-essays, geo-spatial presentations, dynamic timelines, video projects, and short-form interviews. Our editorial team would be happy to work with you to develop ideas suitable for this exciting new platform.
