Call for Articles: Techshow Issue of ‘Law Practice Today’

Is there an article about legal technology you’ve been hankering to write? Here is your chance to get it published and seen by a wide audience of legal and technology professionals.

I am serving as issue editor for the issue of the ABA webzine Law Practice Today that will come out in conjunction with ABA Techshow. I am seeking several feature articles on legal technology. There is no specific theme, but I prefer practical articles that teach, guide and inform, or that bring new perspectives to issues we all deal with.

Anyone can be an author – even vendors. Because this is the Techshow issue, we will give preference to authors who will be speaking at Techshow. As for vendors, articles must not be sales pieces or self-promotional. Thank you, but I don’t want an article about how great your product or service is.

For length, articles may range from 500 to 3,000 words, depending on the topic. The average Law Practice Today article is 1,000 to 1,500 words.

The deadline for submitting finished articles to me is Jan. 6, 2016.

Other guidelines:

  • Articles should be written in a clear and mature writing style.
  • Articles should be well-focused, concise and have a clear topic.
  • Articles should not be written in an academic style or contain footnotes. If you must use references, try to work them into the body of the text or include them at the end.

This one is important: Articles should be original material and not previously published elsewhere.

If you are interested, don’t run off and write it yet. First send me a proposed title and brief summary of what you’d like to write about. We’ll review the submissions and let you know ASAP whether it is accepted.

Send your ideas to me at I hope to hear from you.
