COUNSEL is the official magazine of the Bar of England and Wales. As the Bar’s own magazine, it is largely written by and for barristers.
We welcome unsolicited articles and ideas for consideration across all sections of our magazine: Legal Personality, Practice Toolset, Justice Matters and Bon Vivant. If you would like to submit an article or précis for consideration, please send to the commissioning editor of the magazine: email@example.com.
If accepted for publication, authors will be e-mailed proofs for their approval and have the opportunity to make corrections prior to press/online publication.
We ask for an exclusive right to first publication. Copyright rests with the Bar Council and re-publication of article PDFs, unless a variation is agreed in writing, is subject to an embargo and requires written permission. All articles are also posted online – currently free to view – at www.counselmagazine.co.uk.
Please note, a distinguished Policy and Editorial Board, mainly drawn from the ranks of practising barristers, works with the editorial team on COUNSEL; they may be consulted from time to time regarding publishing decisions and points of law.
The majority of articles will be published in the print version of COUNSEL. Depending on production schedules, some articles may be published online first, in addition to print, or online only.
Online, e-newsletter and social media ‘trails’ may be used to highlight and promote the online content and boost the profile of the authors.
If you would like to submit an article or précis for consideration, please send to the commissioning editor of the magazine: firstname.lastname@example.org
