Legal Writers Wanted


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.

Requirements include:

– 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:
Bankruptcy, Debt, Credit, and Student Loans. A lawyer with experience in any of the following:  bankruptcy, consumer debt issues, student loan debt, or credit reporting. (For each of these categories, apply under Bankruptcy & Debt).
Immigration. An attorney actively practicing immigration law (preferably non-business side) — in particular, seeking knowledge of overlap with criminal codes as well as advanced naturalization issues.
Real Estate. Experience in property transactions, including all aspects of buying and selling.
Medicaid. Estate planning experience in the field of asset protection for Medicaid planning purposes.
Small Business. Significant small business law experience.
Criminal Law. Experience as a prosecutor or criminal defense attorney. Applicants with juvenile court experience also welcomed.

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.
