Given the recent success of YouBlawg in helping others to share useful legal information and news and engage more with the law, we are pleased to announce that as of today, the following sites will operate as guest law blogging websites for a trial period:-
To provide a guest law blog, please register on the sites by clicking the large blue ‘get started’ button, enter your preferred username e.g. ‘Law Blogger Extraordinaire’, your email address and enter the text shown in the captcha box. Once your username and initial password are emailed to you, you will be free to submit guest law blog posts.
We thought it would be useful to provide some additional information and guidelines for guest law blogging on these sites, which is also available here.
Why Guest Blog?
There are many reasons why you would want to publish a guest blog on these sites:-
- Reach over 10,000 of our followers on Twitter and a wide professional audience on other social networks including LinkedIn and Facebook.
- Receive backlinks for your website or blog from an established law blogging website.
- Share useful legal information to a large and varied legal and business community across the UK and beyond.
- Get full credit when your blog post is published and have your articles and your name appearing prominently on Google and other search engines.
Editorial Guidelines for Law Blog Submissions
- Blog posts should provide useful legal information or news on the areas of law relevant to the website on which you are posting. Our editors were formerly lawyers and can tell useful posts from the not-so-useful ones.
- Specify the governing law of your article where appropriate e.g. it may apply under Scots law or the laws of England & Wales.
- Blog posts can be of any length but should ideally be over 300 words.
- Original blog posts are preferred although we are also open to republishing content already published elsewhere if of value to our readership.
- Use subheadings where appropriate using the H1, H2 and H3 tagging functions.
- Blog posts are welcome from law students, lawyers, barristers, law firms and also non-lawyers, particularly those looking to ask legal questions.
- Respect the copyright in the work of others.
- Include video and images where relevant if you have the rights to use them. YouTube videos, for instance, can easily be embedded in posts to help improve your posts.
- Include links to authoritative sources to support your material.
- Include up to three backlinks to your own website or blog from within your post.
- If posting affiliate links, please make readers aware that they are such.
- Include a short professional bio at the beginning or end of your posts.
- Share your submission with your contacts through your social networks.
What we do not publish
- We do not publish generic articles unrelated to law and of no value to our readers.
- We do not publish articles already published elsewhere unless of value to our readers.
Other Guest Law Blogging Policy Information

- We reserve the right to make changes – Please do not be offended if we suggest amendments to your post. We will notify your of any major changes.

- Authors are permitted to republish their guest law blog posts elsewhere – if so a link to the original post is preferred.
- We may add a link to your website or blog in the blogroll section of the site where appropriate and will notify you of such additions.
