We welcome submissions to the Westchester Bar Journal from WCBA attorney members and law school students.  Submission details are as follows:

Articles should be between 1500-4000 words in length and all citations should 
be written in accordance with a Uniform System of Citation published by The Harvard Law Review Association, and accuracy thereof verified by the author.

Generally, it is the WCBA's policy not to accept reprinted articles. If an author seeks to reprint an article, that author MUST first advise the WCBA in advance of the prior publication name and issue date. The author must also obtain from the original publisher written permission granting the WCBA such permission to reprint the article. It is the sole responsibility of the author to fulfill this requirement.

Publication of submitted material gives the WCBA partial copyright and, as holder of the copyright, the Association may consent to republication on Westlaw, Lexis-Nexis, our website, or other publications.

All articles should be accompanied by a brief biography and photograph of the author(s).  Three complimentary copies of each article will be distributed to the authors. 

The editors reserve the right to edit and to accept or reject all manuscripts.
