Dear Trucking Law Committee Member:
By now you should all have received your Spring 2010 Edition of In Transit. It is also available online at the DRI website, www.dri.org. Go to the website and click on “Committees”, then click on “Trucking Law” and you will find the current In Transit there.
And as soon as you have read the current edition, please get your own articles ready for submission! The submission deadline for the next issue is June 1, 2010. We are looking for informative articles regarding the trucking industry and all it pertains to. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to become a published attorney.
In case you misplaced the Guidelines for DRI article submission, I am again including it below. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to receiving those new articles soon.
