Getting Started with the Encyclopedia of Law for Authors and Reviewers

    The Encyclopedia is encouraging legal practitioners to create entries, maybe reusing information produced for other purposes, so that they and their firms are promoted as authoritative sources of knowledge and expertise. Entries must not be promotional in tone or about firms, services or projects – however, there remains huge scope to write with authority and insight about generic legal subjects.

    This is an open-source work of reference, not a business directory (though a firm’s name and hyperlink can also be advertised – in a similar way to Google Adwords – alongside an article), but article authors can append a signature to the page with a discreet link to their user page which can then display further links back to their website and showing other contact details. In many authors view, this makes the Encyclopedia of Law invaluable as a potential content marketing platform for legal practitioners.
