- Summary paragraph providing the focus and scope for the article (include relevant rules/statues/procedures, etc.)

Each issue of Communiqué maintains an editorial focus with practical legal articles and features for Nevada attorneys, judges, and their staff. The content of each issue is planned several months in advance.
All articles submitted will be considered for publication in the Communiqué. 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 Publications Committee shall attempt to secure an author from the list of CCBA merchant members and/or those companies who currently support CCBA through sponsorship and/or advertising. The Publications Committee gives priority to articles and content submitted by active CCBA members.
All authors must follow the guidelines for the composition and submission of content listed in our editorial policy.
