Bridge-Laws Mailing List

This mailing list consists of technical discussions of the Laws and the regulations of various authorities, both in general terms and in detail. Some of the discussions are included here rather than in rec.games.bridge [see earlier description] because of the length of the articles. A basic familiarity with the Laws of Duplicate Contract Bridge is assumed in posting. The mailing list is international, with the majority of posters split between North America and Europe, but with a number of posters from the rest of the world.

Further details may be found in the article Bridge-Laws mailing list [BLML] by David Stevenson.
