Research schedule

Please find the current WWL Research Schedule below.

 

All of the dates on the schedule are provisional and subject to change.

For any of our books, we would be delighted to consider nominations for any individuals who can be considered international leaders in their field. If you are putting forward an individual from your own firm, please provide us with up to 5 client references for them whom we can contact to provide a recommendation, prior to the month in which research for the practice area commences. This allows us sufficient time to add appropriate nominees to our preliminary lists for circulation during research. We would recommend using our client referee template.

 

It is not necessary to request extensions for any of the deadlines below. We are able to accept nominations after the start of research and can usually incorporate feedback after research ends, time permitting. Should your nomination be out of time for the current edition, we will inform you upon receipt.

 

If you have any questions about the research schedule, please contact the Head of Research, Avni Patel.

 

You can also find detailed information about WWL research on our FAQ page.
