No BIG changes for the 2018 Chambers US book

  2. the rules have not changed

Welcome to Toby and … Reinforcing the Rules

  1. Welcome to new US editor Toby Eccleshall, who has replaced the beloved Laura Mills
  2. Toby and other staff do not want to know that your submission is going to be late. What this means is: do not email or call asking for an extension for either the submission form or the referees. There are no extensions. [this is not new]
  3. DO NOT send in more than 20 matters, 20 clients or 20 references. Really. They mean it!
