We welcome proposals from both new and edperienced attorneys. If you are informed, enthusiastic and dedicated, we encourage you to reach out to us.
What if I am interested in writing, but I don't have a particular topic in mind?
We are more than happy to work with you to determine a topic that will be a valuable resource for attorneys in your practice area.
Is there a specific page count that is required for the submission?
In short: no! If your submission is accepted by the NCBA, you may be asked to expand upon the content, but there is no set page count that must be met initially.
How long does it take to produce a publication from the time an initial proposal is submitted to the time that it is released?
If your initial submission consists of an outline and brief summary, you will typically be given 6-12 months to write the first draft of the publication. However, if you have submitted a more complete manuscript and are asked to expand upon the content, you may be given approximately 1-2 months to complete this task.
