Los Angeles Lawyer Is Looking for Articles

Los Angeles Lawyer magazine, the official publication of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, is looking for articles written by lawyers for our members' continuing professional education.

What we publish: Articles on substantive law issues that educate and inform other lawyers about the law. Feature articles are approximately 3,000 to 5,000 words; departments are approximately 2,500 to 3,500 words. No area of law is excluded; what you know about, you can write about. We will gladly provide samples to prospective authors.

What we do not publish: Press releases, articles about public policy or political opinion rather than the law (but opinions about substantive law issues are accepted), articles about people rather than the law (profiles), articles about subjects lawyers may need to know but that are not the law, articles written by committees or firms rather than individual authors, articles that merely express pleasure or displeasure with the results of a particular suit rather than focus on the legal issues involved, outlines, and self-promoting articles.
