We are a legal content writing firm that produces material for individual law firms including web copy for new websites and blog posts to help the general public understand basic legal concepts, legal issues, and news.
We are in need of individuals for a unique, work-from-home writing position. The ideal candidates will have legal experience (either in law school or practicing law) and have some basic understanding of writing for the web (as opposed to the court).
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) familiarity is a plus (but not required).
The most important quality is the ability to write/edit well, sharing complex legal issues accurately for the public.
In most cases writers will be asked to create 500 word blog posts, summaries of practice areas, or other short pieces for use by law firms. Writers may be asked to find new, interesting, relevant blog topics on their own–perfect for those who are news junkies or follow other legal blogs. In addition, writers may write the text that appears on law firm websites, often summarizing general practice areas and including some marketing language.
Total work quantity is flexible, depending on your availability, but generally writers will be asked to create 10 to 50 pieces per week. Each post is expected to take 30-60 minutes and pays $20.
