Interested in writing an article?
If so, we would love to hear from you! 101 articles are geared toward new lawyers and should cover general topics and include snapshot tips in law and practice. 201 articles are designed for those who already have a baseline of knowledge in the relevant field. The articles should be drafted to deliver specific, practical information in an easy-to-read format that maintains a professional presentation, as opposed to articles you might submit to law reviews, scholarly journals, or magazines. The writing should be clear and concise, using common words and generally short sentences in short paragraphs to communicate practical information. When feasible, you should write in the active voice and include tips, lists, bullet points, examples, good quotes, lively writing, and other techniques to facilitate the readers' grasp of information. In general, articles follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, and Webster's 11th edition. Most articles are fewer than 300 words; the longest features are approximately 600 words.
If you are interested in writing a more substantive article, we would be happy to discuss the option of writing an article for one of the Section of Labor & Employment Law's publications.
