Thank you for volunteering to submit an article for publication in the Tau Epsilon Rho Law Society SUMMONS.  Following is a summary of submission guidelines for your reference.

Please keep in mind that Tau Epsilon Rho comprises attorneys from across the country.  Accordingly, educational articles should have a broad application, and not be restricted to practices or trends within a specific locality.

Please submit your article by computer file.  Formatting should be in Word Perfect (preferred) or ASCII Text format.  PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT FILES IN MICROSOFT WORD FORMAT.  Files may be submitted on computer diskette or by e-mail attachment.

Footnotes should be included in a separate file, as they are printed only when space permits.  If space does not permit printing footnotes, the editorial policy is to direct readers to the article's author for this information.  Please include contact information that can be printed with the article.

Currently, available space limits publication within a particular issue to 4-6 columns.  The Editor reserves the right to divide the article for publication across multiple issues (if you believe that the article will require subdivision, I encourage you to recommend the logical place for such a break).

If your article is protected by copyright, please include an appropriate statement granting permission for TER to print the protected work.

We encourage authors to forward a head and shoulders photograph for inclusion with the article.

The Editor reserves the right to edit all submissions.  In the case of education articles, usually, editing is performed only for grammar and formatting.

Please call (248-357-0002) or send e-mail to the Editor (  if you have any questions.

Thank you for your contribution to the Society.
