Guest Posting

Thank you for your interest in guest writing for Legal Reader.

Legal Reader is devoted to protecting consumers. We take pride in exposing the hypocrisy of corporations, other organizations, and individuals whose actions put innocent people in harm’s way. We are unapologetic in our dedication to informing the public and unafraid to call out those who are more focused on profits than people’s safety.

We only accept articles that are non-promotional (no “advertorials”) and related to:

  • Law
  • Politics
  • Regulatory issues
  • Consumer protection
  • Legal issues in business
  • Legal issues in health/medicine

We are especially happy to work with lawyers, law firms, legal marketing/PR agencies, and enjoy building long-term relationships with them.

We do NOT accept articles from the following: 

  • Essay writing/homework services
  • Dating/porn sites
  • Casinos/online gaming/betting sites, UNLESS the article covers a legal issue in the industry.

Our article requirements are simple:

  1. Guest posting with us is FREE. 
  2. You get your own byline (your name as you would like it to appear, a one-paragraph bio, and a head shot). You may reference your website in your bio. Submissions without this information will not be reviewed.
  3. All links in posts are do-follow. The link in your bio is also do-follow.
  4. Posts can be 500 – 1,500 words long. 
  5. Posts should be sent to jay@legalreader.com, with the subject line LegalReader Submission. If they are not, they will be deleted, unread.
  6. We publish two images with each post. We provide the images to ensure there is no copyright infringement.

We do not accept link insertion requests.

Publication process:

  • You will not hear from us until we have reviewed your article. This may take weeks due to the number of submissions we receive. However, unless you direct such emails to your Spam or Trash folders, you will receive one auto-response message right away.
  • Articles are published in the order received. NO EXCEPTIONS!
  • Due to the high volume of submissions received, we are often booking a month or two in advance. 
  • If you are a freelancer submitting an article on behalf of a client, please note that your client deadlines will not determine when your article gets published. 

We don’t like including this part, but experience has shown us we must:

Not reading the guidelines, particularly about our publication process and the time involved between submission and publication, is no excuse for not following them. 

We will NOT answer emails such as “Did you get my email?”, “What is the status of my article?”, “Why haven’t I heard from you?”,  and our personal favorite, “Why don’t you like me?” 

Such messages only clog our inbox and make it more difficult to actually review and approve submissions. They will be deleted upon receipt.
