Expert Analysis

In addition to providing exclusive daily news coverage, Law360 features contributed guest analysis, opinions and videos from leading practitioners in a full range of practice areas. Topics may be practice- or industry-specific, and we review unsolicited pitches on an ongoing basis. Although articles can have a scholarly focus, they should be written with a business audience in mind. Most importantly we are looking for concise, thought-provoking and original writing on timely legal and business issues.


Guest Article Submission Guidelines


  1. Law360 reviews guest article ideas — including analysis, opinions and rebuttals — on an ongoing basis for all of its publications (see complete list below).
  2. The article must cover an issue of current interest to a legal and business audience (e.g., cases, policies, deals, trends, debates).
  3. The analysis, opinions and expressions of the author must be original.
  4. The article must be well written by qualified experts.
  5. The article should be between 1,000 and 2,000 words. Longer works are considered on a case by case basis.
  6. The article may not contain derogatory comments about any person or organization.
  7. Law360 does not publish rants, advertorials, accolade announcements or otherwise self-promotional material.
  8. The article must not have been previously published. And once published in Law360, an article cannot be republished in another news outlet for a period of 90 days. (It is fine to distribute — including a link to Law360 — via law firm websites, law firm newsletters, content aggregators, and social media within the 90-day exclusivity period. Law360 does publish articles that have been distributed through individual law firm networks.)
  9. Articles about court decisions should feature cases no older than 90 days unless discussing broader trends.
  10. If citations are included, they should be in the form of endnotes.
  11. If an article covers a matter in which your organization is or has been involved — directly or indirectly — such involvement must be disclosed in a paragraph at the end of the article. If the authors have represented parties in the matter discussed — even in unrelated cases — such representation also must be disclosed.
  12. The article must be up-to-date, and time-sensitive material should be noted with the submission. “Priority” publishing requests are considered, but not guaranteed.
  13. The article must be submitted in Microsoft Word format (no PDFs).
  14. The submission must include each author’s name, title, office and organization, as well as high-resolution color photos (JPG) of up to four authors. While photos are limited to four per article, we can accommodate more than four authors on the byline if necessary.
  15. Images are encouraged, but all charts, graphs, diagrams, photos, illustrations or other visual aids within an article must be sent as individual JPG files.
  16. We reserve the right to edit articles for spelling, grammar and punctuation in keeping with AP style and Law360 style, and to change headlines — length and tone — as needed to fit our newsletters. Maximum headline length is 55 characters (including spaces).
  17. While the author retains copyright to his or her article, Law360 reserves the right to republish parts or all of an article indefinitely without any royalty payments.
  18. Law360 does not pay for guest articles, nor does it charge for publishing.
  19. Once an article is published, we may be unable to honor requests to modify it, including for reasons of employee hires or departures, etc.
  20. Once an article is published, a firm may purchase a PDF of the article with approved use of the Law360 logo from our reprints department. Reprint requests must be sent directly to reprints@law360.com.

Op-Ed Submission Guidelines


  1. The article must cover an issue of national importance for the legal and business community.
  2. The article should be thought-provoking, offer well-reasoned opinions, and be written in an engaging and accessible style.

  4. The article should be between 600 and 1,000 words.
  5. The article may not contain defamatory comments about any person or organization.

  7. Case citations should be used sparingly (if at all).
  8. Charts, graphs, diagrams, photos, illustrations or other images are encouraged, provided the author has permission to use them. Images should be sent as individual JPG files.

Video Submission Guidelines


  1. The video must cover an issue of current interest to a legal and business audience (e.g., cases, policies, deals, trends, debates).
  2. The analysis, opinions and expressions in the video must be original.
  3. The video must appear professional and feature qualified experts.
  4. The video may not exceed five minutes in length.
  5. The video may not contain derogatory comments about any person or organization.
  6. Law360 does not publish advertising, marketing or puffery. Commentary shall be limited to analysis of news events and trends relevant to litigation, policy, enforcement, deals, industries and markets. Practice tips are encouraged — promotion of the organization is not.
  7. The video must not have been previously aired with a news organization. And once aired by Law360, the video cannot be re-aired by another news outlet for a period of 90 days. (It is fine to distribute — including a link to Law360 — via law firm websites, law firm newsletters, and content aggregators within the 90-day exclusivity period. Law360 does publish videos that have been distributed through individual law firm networks.)
  8. If you are pitching a video that has not yet been produced, please include the script.
  9. Law360 reserves the right to refuse publication of any video that does not meet editorial approval.
  10. Law360 publishes videos by embedding links within articles. If your video is hosted by a third-party (e.g., Vimeo, YouTube), you must grant Law360 access to the content for streaming purposes and supply the appropriate link for embedding.
  11. If your video is hosted by a third party, it must not be viewable by the general public. Once accepted for publication by Law360, privacy settings for the video on third-party hosts should be adjusted to “unlisted.”
    • The video must be accompanied by an introduction paragraph including:
      • Name of the producing organization
      • Name, title and organization of any expert featured in the video
      • Brief summary of the issue being addressed
      • Disclosure of any involvement — direct or indirect — by the video producers or commentators in the matter being discussed
  12. The video must be up-to-date, and time-sensitive material should be noted with the submission. “Priority” publishing requests are considered, but not guaranteed.
  13. Law360 reserves the right to craft an appropriate headline and summary in keeping with AP and in-house style in order to promote the video to our readership.
  14. Law360 does not pay for video content, nor do we charge for publishing.
  15. All videos aired by Law360 require a licensing agreement signed by the contributing firm.
