Contently Is Hiring Writers With Legal Expertise

By Dillon Baker August 18th, 2016

In the name of helping freelancers find work, we’re now occasionally posting gig openings at Contently, our parent company. Contently works with brand clients to help them create content marketing—basically editorial work, except for a brand instead of a publisher. A good example is The Red Bulletin, Red Bull’s popular extreme sports magazine.

The hope is that everyone benefits: You, our readers, will be first in line for high-paying jobs, and Contently can draw from a wide, high-quality base of freelancers.

This month, we’re looking for writers with legal expertise. Specifically, expertise in one or more of the following categories is needed:

  • E-discovery
  • Estate planning
  • Tax documentation
  • Wills
  • Cyber security
  • Patents
  • Bankruptcy
  • Trends in the legal industry
  • Business best practices
  • Intersection of technology and law
  • Hiring practices at legal firms

Clips in one or more of the following publications are highly desired:

  • iPhone J.D.
  • The Careerist
  • The Law Insider
  • Lawyerist
  • The Wall Street Journal’s Law Blog

The pay is competitive, and there are a couple of different formats clients are looking for:

  • Rates begin at $380 for blog posts, which are generally 300–500 words.
  • Rates for reported articles, generally 400–700 words, are $575.

If you haven’t worked with Contently before, here’s the basic gist:

  • Our platform pays you instantly upon submission; in other words, no waiting around for checks.
  • There’s no obligation to accept assignments.
  • Our talent team and managing editors will support you throughout the process.
  • Our clients are all major brands, and should be good additions to your portfolios.

If you’re interested, here’s how to apply:

  1. Register with Contently by creating a free Contently portfolio.
  2. Send your portfolio URL and a short summary about your experience to our talent team for evaluation.
