Writing for The Colorado Lawyer

Getting Started

The Colorado Lawyer (TCL) enlists the help of volunteer attorneys to serve as coordinating editors for the publication. Coordinating editors are responsible for soliciting articles, reviewing them for substance and accuracy and, in conjunction with TCL editors, scheduling them for publication in the journal. Anyone interested in having an article considered for publication in TCL—whether he or she has a completed article to submit, has an idea for an article, or would like suggestions for an article topic—should begin by contacting a coordinating editor.
