Press releases, litigation alerts, other notifications
Please send all press releases and story pitches to email@example.com. An editor will consider your submission within a few hours and get back to you as soon as possible.
In addition to our exclusive daily news coverage, Law360 Newswires feature contributed guest articles and videos from leading practitioners in a full range of practice areas. While much of the content found in the Expert Analysis section is derived from regularly scheduled contributors, we review unsolicited pitches and submissions on an ongoing basis. Topics can be practice- or industry-specific, but most importantly we are looking for concise, thought-provoking and original writing. Although articles can have a scholarly focus, they should be written with a business audience in mind.
Please send all article and video proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- The analysis, views and expressions in the video must be original.
- The video may not exceed five minutes in length.

- If you are pitching a video that has not yet been produced, please include the script.
- Law360 reserves the right to refuse publication of any video that does not meet editorial approval.

- If your video is hosted by a third party, it must not be viewable by the general public. This would negate the value for Law360 as an exclusive content provider.
