Deadline dates to receive copy

No article can be guaranteed to be published and the decision of the editorial board/ editor is final. However most well written articles of a relevant area of employment law stand a good chance of being included. We may ask authors to change paragraphs or rewrite to fit space limits. We would also ask that any article appear first and only in ELA Briefing unless specific authorisation is sought to publish elsewhere.
