In addition, we offer a platform for lawyers to share information with legal consumers in our For the Public section. Please review the guidelines below for your topic. 

All submitted articles must be original, unpublished content and submissions should include the author’s email address so we can contact them with questions or publication confirmation. Please note, only content written by industry professionals will be considered for publication.

Legal News & Op-Eds

Lawyers, judges, law school professors, expert witnesses and other appropriate parties are invited to submit op-ed style articles in which the author presents their outlook or opinion on a recent or developing case/law/trend and its ramifications on the industry and/or similar future cases/circumstances as well as why they believe this is a good/bad precedent. Attorney at Law Magazine doesn’t publish footnotes, but authors are encourages to cite cases, laws and other cited articles with a link out to the original content.

As with all content, the articles should be original, unpublished pieces between 800 and 1,500 words. All articles need to be accompanied by a 50-100 word bio and headshot to run alongside the byline.

The Business of Law

Industry experts and lawyers are invited to submit educational articles offering tips or best practices on the business of law – practice management, career advancement, marketing, legal technology, etc. Published articles will need to provide new, unique information for our lawyer readers. Articles that are too vague or general will not be considered for publication. Similarly, articles that are too promotional will not be considered for publication. Published articles will need to either offer new information that hasn’t been presented to readers before in the magazine or offer unique insight into a practice, marketing trend, etc. that the editors believe is noteworthy or of value to legal readers. A good practice for articles in this section will be leaving the reader with an actional step or series of steps that can be taken to positively affect their practice or law firm. Authors are encouraged to imbue articles with their voice, experience and tangible examples to help illustrate the information to lawyer readers.

As with all content, the articles should be original, unpublished pieces between 800 and 1,500 words. All articles need to be accompanied by a 50-100 word bio and headshot to run alongside the byline.

For the Public

Attorney at Law Magazine has evolved to become a platform for lawyers to speak directly to legal consumers. Attorneys are invited to submit educational articles providing an answer or information to a commonly asked legal question or legal topic in their area of practice. Articles that are too vague or general will not be considered for publication. The article will need to provide solid background information and context for the legal topic in question. Additionally, while citations – links out to cited material – are encouraged, the content must be linked to government, court or other official sites rather than to law firm websites. Authors are encouraged to insert their own experience or examples of similar cases they’ve seen within the article to help illustrate the point to the readers.

As with all content, the articles should be original, unpublished pieces between 800 and 1,500 words. All articles need to be accompanied by a 50-100 word bio and headshot to run alongside the byline.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, all article submissions are reviewed by the editorial staff to determine if it means the above outlined editorial guidelines and that it provides value to our readers. Most submitted content is not published. If you’d like to submit a topic for review prior to submitting a full draft, please feel free to email [email protected]. This does not guarantee that a drafted article will be accepted, but will help to guide the author toward an appropriate topic. 

Submitted articles will be reviewed and proofed by our editorial team prior to publication. If substantive edits are required, an editor will contact the author to review the changes prior to publication. 

Not everyone can be published in Attorney at Law Magazine. We only accept articles written by industry professionals, i.e, attorneys, judges, law school professors, expert witnesses, legal marketing professionals, legal recruiters and other legal vendors. Content submitted by non-legal industry professionals will not be considered for publication. 

Attorney at Law Magazine encourages authors to include citation links to original source material, including cases, laws, government resources, etc. We do not accept links to the author’s website or to other law firm or industry company websites. 

Review times for submitted content can vary. Typically, submitted articles will be reviewed and published within 5 business days. If you’ve not received a response, you may follow up by contacting [email protected]. Please note, articles that are not accepted do not automatically receive a notice. If you follow up an editor will notify you if your article is still in the review queue or if it has not been accepted. 

We prefer that pieces be authored by one individual as it helps to reinforce the singular voice. If two people have co-authored a strong piece, we will accept that. We cannot accept more than two people on the byline. Nor do we accept “teams” or “firms” as the byline. The max word count for the bio will still need to be 50-100 words combined. Additionally, there is only one spot for a headshot, so with a two-author submission you can either select one author to be displayed with their image or submit a split image that will be displayed next to the byline and bio.
