The New Laws are Here

The revised Laws of Duplicate Bridge went into effect Sept. 8.

You can purchase a copy of the new laws from Baron Barclay Bridge Supply. A pdf version of the laws can be downloaded for personal use here.

A synopsis of the changes in the laws was published in the July issue of the Bridge Bulletin, and there are plans for further explanations of how the new laws affect members. Watch the Ruling the Game column in the Bridge Bulletin for more information on this subject.

The World Bridge Federation has posted a side-by-side version of the new laws and the old, highlighting the changes. Click here to view it. Please keep in mind that this version does not reflect the elections exercised by the ACBL.
