  • The "People on the Move" section is limited to promotions, new positions and firm establishments. Only ACBA member announcements will be published.
  • The "Changes in Status" section is limited to court notices regarding attorney status. These announcements come directly from the state and federal courts and are not edited by ACBA staff.
  • The editors retain the right to accept, edit or reject submissions at their sole discretion.
  • Due to the overwhelming number of submissions received and the nature of the Lawyers Journal production schedule, your announcement will be placed in a queue upon receipt and will be published in the next available issue.
