Nolo, the oldest and foremost publisher of do-it-yourself legal books and software for consumers, and Internet Brands, a leader in online publishing for vertical markets, are seeking writers with a strong legal background to contribute well-written, informative articles to our portfolio of legal websites. Writers must be able to read statutes, understand legal issues, and put the law into plain English for a general audience. Demonstrated legal expertise is required.
For more than 40 years, Nolo has been dedicated to publishing the best, most accurate and up-to-date legal information available. We take our mission seriously. If you share our passion for making the legal system accessible to everyone--and can translate legalese into English—we’d love to hear from you.
This is a 100% freelance, telecommuting position. Assignments, writing, editing, and submissions are all handled through our online system. All you need is a computer, Internet access, and the ability to deliver clean, concise copy on a legal topic in which you have expertise.
- Ability to write in an authoritative, neutral tone.
- Ability to translate legal concepts into articles and FAQs that can be easily understood by a consumer audience.
- A law degree and at least three years of experience as a practicing lawyer.
- Strong research and fact-checking skills.
- Attention to detail and the desire to provide accurate legal information to the reader.
We are currently looking for lawyers in the following areas who are strong writers:
- DUI/Driving Laws
- Small Business
- Tax Law
- Landlords & Tenants
- Bankruptcy & Debt
- Criminal Law
- Real Estates, Trusts & Probate
- Family Law
- Personal Injury
- Workers' Compensation
When you join the Nolo writing team, a legal editor who has expertise in your subject area will assign and edit your articles. Most articles we publish are from 600 to 1200 words long. Rates vary; as you would expect, we pay more for longer and more complicated articles.
