Write a Paper

The IICJ welcomes papers from in-house counsel from all jurisdiction and business sectors on topics they believe need to be shared with others.

Managing in-house teams is becoming more complex as the role of in-house functions develops to include work previously carried out by outside law firms. The IICJ provides a platform for in-house counsel to share knowledge and experience of how they manage their teams successfully and how their organisations navigate the myriad of legislation and regulation at a national and international level.

Read by in-house counsel from across the world, representing all business and industry sectors, an article written by you, published by the IICJ, will assuredly raise your profile.

The first step to submitting a paper is to write a 200 word abstract by completing the form below which will be reviewed by the Editorial Board. Once your abstract has been accepted you will be invited to write your paper. The final paper will be 3000-6000 words.

Topics include recent or proposed changes in legislation at a local, national and international level concerning a specific business sector or all business sectors.

Key areas of focus for articles and case studies are:

• Competition/Antitrust

• Litigation

• Employment

• Data Protection

• Corporate Governance

• Intellectual Property

• Mergers & Acquisitions

• Regulation

• Contracts

• In-house Management

Since the launch of the International In-house Counsel Journal in 2007, over 1500 senior in-house counsel have written articles for the IICJ on topics affecting their departments and their businesses.

I really appreciated having the opportunity to publish a few papers with the IICJ, since this gave me the opportunity to be known as an expert at an international level.

The topic of my current article ( antitrust enforcement of no poach agreements) is under-appreciated by managers and HR professionals. The increased risk of civil and criminal prosecution in this area should place this topic near the top of all in-house counsel's reading lists.
R. Mark McCareins
General Counsel
Metals Service Center Institute, USA
I wrote this article because I could not keep an amazing experience of the LawWithoutWalls only to myself. I want the readers and other in-house counsels to think about different interactive approaches with educational institutions and law firms for the benefit of the legal community. We all only have to win by diversifying our in-house counseling portfolio.
