Well-Reported Features Net Big Bucks at California Lawyer

California Lawyer may cover more nationally-oriented stories, like Supreme Court cases, but the mag always ties it all back to its home state.  To land a byline here, it indeed helps to be based in California, but writers don’t necessarily have to live in the Golden State to pitch.

Aimed at — you guessed it — California lawyers, the pub covers one of the most talked-about legal markets with analysis, in-depth features, technology updates and practical advice. “We cover groundbreaking cases, compelling controversies and fascinating personalities, and, as a monthly magazine, we seek to go beyond the headlines of the day with lively writing and in-depth reporting,” said managing editor Chuleenan Svetvilas.

Even better, they’re looking for more freelance feature writers and pay up to $3,000 for quality pieces. For pitching etiquette and editors’ contact info, read How To Pitch: California Lawyer.
