Two key benefits of Business Law Section membership are access to the Section’s official publication, the Business Law News, and the Section’s Annual Review of Recent Developments and Legislation.
The Editorial Board is responsible for all editing and publication activities for the quarterly Business Law News, and the Annual Review of Recent Developments and Legislation. (For information about the Business Law Section’s other publications, click on the links in the left menu.). The Board reviews and selects articles for the two publications and supervises the production staff.
The Board meets as a group several times a year, but most of its work is done in small teams who review and edit particular articles submitted for publication.

Several issues of the Business Law News are now posted in the Members Only Area of the Section’s website. The Board is also working on adding a searchable index of the News to the Member Only Area. We will let you know here when it is available.
The Section also publishes an annual review of recent developments and new legislation of interest to California practitioners. The material is provided by the Section’s Standing Committees and assembled and edited by the Editorial Board. The 2001-2006 Annual Reviews are posted in the Members Only Area.
