Article Submission

Have an idea for a Barrister article or would you like to submit an article you have written?  Please contact Sharon Elmore at

Contents of the Barrister are arranged in a reader-friendly format and, unlike lengthier publications, advertising space in the Barrister is limited, so your information earns high visual impact.

All advertisements must be submitted by the first day of the month preceding the issue. (For example, the deadline for the March  issue is February 1; the deadline for the April  issue is February 1.) The months of January/February, May/June, July/August and November/December are combined. The deadlines are December 1, April 1, June 1 and October 1, respectively.

  • All advertisements will be printed in the Barrister’s duotone mix.
  • All advertisements are subject to editing and must be approved by the Barrister staff.
  • All advertisements should be sent to the managing editor in electronic format. It is preferred that clients submit display ads in pdf format. Display ads may also be submitted in psd, eps, or jpeg format.
  • Ads may be submitted via CD or email.
  • A display ad may be developed from submitted information, free of charge.
  • All advertising clients will be invoiced. Clients may pay for several months of ad space in advance if they choose.
