Book Contributors

One of the most beneficial products that the Section offers is the comprehensive treatises published jointly with BNA Books. The Section’s committees spearhead the publications of these treatises, which are written by Section members.   Contributing to a book is a great way to become more involved with committees for those whose schedules don't always permit attendance at committee meetings.
