Things to Keep in Mind When You Plan to Write for us:
Make sure the article is not a press release or promotional in nature.
Our readers mainly comprise of individuals, professionals and entrepreneurs interested in understanding different aspects of the law. Write with the perspective of simplifying the law so that even a layman can understand it.
The article should, at least, be 600 words.
We don’t reblog articles. If it has been published anywhere else, we refrain from republishing.
Kinds of articles- Your topic must be about the law. Legislative Change, Court, Consumer, Politics, Startup, Crime, Family or anything else with a legal angle. Your content should be written with the perspective of simplifying law or to provide valuable insights and information related to law.
Before you start writing, do some research; find legal or factual content to support your opinion (if any).
Before you get down to writing, frame your topic in the form of a question (lawyer-types will say “issue”); the rest of your piece must focus (or attempt) to answer that question.
Submissions that contain racist, sexist or xenophobic marks will not be published. You should ask yourself, “How will another person perceive what I have written?”
Try to keep the legal jargon to bare necessity – while this blog is about the law, most of the members of the audience will know nothing about the law.
