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 author or divided among the authors, if there are more than one.
The editors reserve the right to edit and to accept or reject all manuscripts.
