The Blog.phBar.org welcomes contributors to write various articles that may be of interest to the phBar.org Community. A number of contributors and authors are already on board, so let’s discuss some questions that you may possibly raise at certain point:
What can I write about? The blog is intended to be a summary of the useful discussions in the Forum and a venue for a more focused presentation of various subject matter. This, however, is not entirely about the Bar Exams. Feel free to discuss other legal issues and law updates that may interest all students of law, including lawyers, not merely “law students”.
Are there specific criteria on how I should write? You’re pretty much free to use your style. Just remember that all subscribers will automatically receive by email an update on your post. Garbage in, garbage out. Subscribers will receive the title and a short summary of your post.
Should I be serious or funny? Depends on the subject matter. Same with the length of the article.
What if there’s no appropriate category? Just select the closest category. Then, after your post is published, we’ll create a new category just for you.
What’s the difference between an Author and a Contributor? Authors can immediately publish their posts. Contributors can only submit, but not publish, their articles. Someone else must publish it for Contributors. Once published, their names will be reflected as the author.
How can I be an Author or a Contributor? Right now, only members of the Forum may become an Author or Contributor. If we personally know you (and we know where to find you in case of problems), we could make an exception.
