Partial Topical Index to Bridge Bulletin
Appeals related articles in Bridge Bulletin

In the ACBL zone, the laws changed on 3/31/1987 and 5/27/1997.  Articles prior to May 2000 (Brissman, LeBendig, and others) typically refer to a specific appeal.  Starting with May 2000, Ron Gerard has a series that goes into more depth. By the way, learning about these rulings can definitely help a club director, even if the ruling was from a tournament.
