Submitting an Article for Consideration
The 101 articles are specifically geared toward the new lawyer. This is not a law review, scholarly journal, or magazine. The resource is designed to deliver specific, practical information in an easy-to-read format that maintains a professional presentation. The writing must be clear and concise, using common words and generally short sentences in short paragraphs to communicate practical information. When feasible, authors 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, the practice series follows 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.
