Our Dear LiL Blog is made up of a wonderfully eclectic mix of topics and content relevant to our ‘lil community – that is to say women in law.
We often feature guest bloggers and welcome outside contributions as we believe alternative perspectives provide great value to our readers.
If you would like to submit a post for our consideration, we recommend that you review our blog to gain a sense of our style and tone. While your post should reflect your personal style, it should also complement the general tone of our blog which is informative yet approachable. We love displaying a bit of personality without being overly cheesy.
Reviewing our blog will also familiarize you with our existing content. Keeping our readers in mind, we like to avoid duplication and prefer to publish submissions that take a fresh and informative perspective on existing topics or new topics that will resonate with our community.
Still interested? Our submission requirements are set out below. We look forward to reading our proposed post.
