Becoming a Business Law Today Author Is Easier Than You Think

Is it your New Year’s resolution to become a published author in 2020?  The Section’s recently re-imagined web publication, Business Law Today (BLT), provides several opportunities for Business and Corporate Litigation Committee members to become internationally published authors.  With a worldwide readership of nearly 50,000 business law practitioners, BLT is the fastest and easiest way for Section members to get noticed by the audiences that matter the most.  Introductory-level content written by and/or for younger lawyers is welcomed and encouraged!

Article authors are featured on their very own author page, allowing you to expand your professional digital footprint beyond your employer’s website and traditional social media.  Whether you are a newer lawyer or an existing influencer and thought leader, we encourage you to consider submitting any of the following content types to the BLT Editorial Board for consideration:  Month-In-Brief (a 1-paragraph summary concerning recent legal developments within the past 30 days); Short Articles (750 words or less on a timely business law topic without footnotes or extensive citations); or In-Depth Articles (longer-form content offering deep analysis of a topic with footnotes and more citations).

If you were a panelist at a recent Section CLE program or substantive presentation, convert your topic to a short article!  If you recently published a case law alert for your law firm, convert it to an original Month-In-Brief!  If you want to promote awareness of a complex issue or topic relevant to business law or litigation, transform your idea into an in-depth article!  To get started, email your pitch or original manuscript to Hon. Mac R. McCoy (mac_mccoy@flmd.uscourts.gov) (Executive Editor) and Sara E. Bussiere (sbussiere@bayardlaw.com) (Managing Editor).
