Vacancy Details

Vacancy Title: Regular Contributor

The Role

Our Regular Writers contribute one article per month (this is negotiable, dependent on the circumstances) on a legal topic of their choosing. Ranging from 1,000 to 2,500 words, typically, these typically require around five hours' work.

We endeavour to provide all of our Regular Writers with extensive editorial support on both copy and content. Each article is reviewed by two of our experienced editors; ensuring articles are always published at the highest possible standard, portraying you and your abilities in the best light. We also provide regular writers with a comprehensive list of suggested topics, should they be short of inspiration.

We have a strong belief that our writing team should see writing as a past time rather than a commitment, and fully encourage every single one of our writers to express their own opinions in their articles.

What We Offer You

As with all positions at Keep Calm Talk Law, our regular writers commit their time on a voluntary basis. That said, this is not to say our volunteers get nothing out of the project.

As a member of our team, expect to have your work recognised. Keep Calm Talk Law a unique and benevolent project, which has been recognised as such by the legal profession. Not only does this look great on application forms of any level, but it often exposes your articles to potential employers, potential clients, professional contacts and most importantly people that share your views and interests.

Finally, we have seen a vast improvement in the ability of every single one of our regular writers; from draft-to-draft, and article-to-article. Online publication requires meticulous research, and perhaps even more importantly, the ability to explain something complex in an easy to understand and concise manner. These are valuable skills to develop and keep fresh, no matter what stage you are at in your career; we will help you develop them.

Further, Keep Calm Talk Law has proved to be a useful stepping stone to publishing with other leading publishers. A number of our writers have written for leading titles as a result of their work with Keep Calm Talk Law.

Our team members are delighted to contribute, and we are sure you will be too.

To Apply

  1. Attach an original article to an email to lizahartley@hotmail.com or pwlennon27@gmail.com. You can also email to consult our team on your choice of topic prior to writing.
  2. The original article should be on a current legal topic and there is no word limit for this; it can be as long as you feel the subject needs. Please read a few Keep Calm Talk Law articles for the style we are looking for, and the type of topics we publish. Anything over 1,500 words should be sufficient. 
  3. Include in your email/message some background information about yourself (including current professional or educational stage and organisation or institution respectively), your legal interests and your career aspirations.

Please consider our Contributor Guidelines on topic choice, style, word count, referencing etc. before commencing work on your article. We look forward to hearing from you, and wish you every success in your application.
