Legal blog contributor

The Legal Compass blog is read mainly by legal and other professionals. We analyse each topic in a robust, thoughtful way, bringing new perspectives, suggestions or questions to the legal discussion. Our approach is what makes our blog different. To achieve a high standard of work, we peer-review all pieces internally or externally, either with experts, legal practitioners or senior students (LLM, PhD). The Editorial Board assigns each article to one Editor, and the Head Editor does the final stage review. 

As a minimum, our contributors must contribute 4 pieces per year, pro-rata. We permit Guest Authors to make contributions but cannot guarantee that their contribution will be subject to the same publishing timeline as regular contributors. Contributions have a maximum word limit of 1500 words. To view our Publishing Guidelines, please download the form on the left. To contribute, please download the Contributor Form and return it to Mr Panayiotis Vassilas (Head Editor) at info@thelegalcompass.co.uk
