General Guidelines*

“The first paragraph should catch the reader’s eye. Your model should be the opening paragraph of a good short story, not the beginning of an academic essay”. You may want to link your idea to a current, well-known (Canadian) justice issue.

“At the outset, your reader should have a general idea of where you are going – but you don’t need a roadmap.  We need to know in the first paragraph that you are writing about why we should ban texting while driving, for example, but not that you will give us two arguments and two examples.

Accuracy, brevity and clarity” – the writing should be concise, but the meaning must come through very clearly and be well backed up with references and a solid conclusion.

Your submission will be read for content and clarity upon receipt at CCJA. All editing will be Tracked/Comments for author approval/rejection/modification. We recommend the use of headings and reserve the right to make any such additions. Please include a brief summary (100-120 words).

*Parts of the above guidelines are from Andrew Leigh’s ‘online article ‘A few tips for opinion piece writers at www.andrewleigh.org/pdf/OpEd_Tips.pdf.

Opinions expressed in this publication do not necessarily reflect the Association’s views, but are included to encourage reflection and action on the criminal justice system throughout Canada.
