The content for each issue is planned several months in advance. Nevada attorneys who want to write an article first must submit a proposal for consideration by the editors.
Proposals of content
Attorney members of the CCBA are encouraged to contribute articles for publication.
Articles must be on topic and original, unpublished works written by the attorney(s) listed in the byline and specifically for publication in the Communiqué. Proposals should be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief c/o email@example.com. The proposals will be forwarded for review and consideration to the editorial board. As space is limited, the editors review all proposals for articles several months in advance.
Content proposals should include the following information:
- Original submission of ideas for articles or themes for future editions
- Author(s) name(s), Nevada bar number(s), and a short biographical statement
- Summary paragraph providing the focus and scope for the article (including relevant rules/statutes/procedures, etc.)
- Proposed issue for publication (based on editorial calendar above).
All articles submitted will be considered for publication. However, Communiqué will not publish self-serving articles promoting a specific named product or services of an individual or firm.
The Editor-In-Chief, in conjunction with the CCBA Publications Committee and the editorial board, reserves the right to edit or to reject articles submitted, and to decide when or if they will publish the article. The editorial board reserves the right to edit for style, content, continuity, and length. The CCBA Publications Committee and the editorial board will not consider for publication unsolicited articles from merchants who are not members or supporters of CCBA through sponsorship or advertising. If a specific need arises for a merchant-authored article or feature, the CCBA Publications Committee shall attempt to secure an author from the list of CCBA merchant members and/or those companies who currently support the CCBA through sponsorship and/or advertising. The CCBA Publications Committee gives priority to articles and content submitted by active CCBA members.
