Submissions Guidelines

Guidelines for Guest Blog Submissions

Legal resources are what the Law Society Library provides, but “Legal Sourcery” is the expertise we use to help navigate through the jumble of options. This blog contains daily posts that include useful research tips, interesting legal research news, new products and services offered by the Library, and legal research CPD offered by our staff and outside organizations. This includes weekly columns such as Monday Pick-Me-Ups (interesting links to help ease you into your week), Tuesday Reche McKeague Guest Blogger Post, Thursday Throwback, and Friday Legal Research Tip of the Week. We also regularly post grammar/editing tips and lighter fare, such as Law on Film.

Topics

We welcome posts on the following topics:

  • legal research
  • relating to the study or practice of law
  • case comments
  • book reviews [*]

Posts should be between 700 – 1500 words. Longer posts may be considered. Please contact Melanie Hodges Neufeld with your post ideas.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Hours

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours may be available to Law Society members who contribute to the blog. CPD hours are based on the actual time to produce the final product, to a maximum of six (6) hours per writing project. Please see the CPD policy for more information.

Editing

The Law Society Library reserves the right to edit posts for spelling, grammar, etc.

Publishing

Publishing of submitted posts will be done at the discretion of the Law Society Library. We reserve the right to decline publishing any submitted post and to remove any post after it has been published.

Submitting Posts

Please email posts to Melanie Hodges Neufeld, Director of Legal Resources.
