Using Law Students to Power Your Blog: Win-Win for Everyone
When it comes to ghostwriting law blogs, the majority view within the blawgosphere is “don’t.” At the same time, it is recognized that content makes a blog valuable to readers. So what can busy lawyers do to improve the quality of their blogs if they can’t spare the time to create original content themselves?
According to an article via myShingle.com, one possible solution discovered at Pennsylvania attorney, Neil Hendershot’s blog, Pennsylvania Elder, Estate & Fiduciary Blog: have a law student research and draft an articles for your blog, just as Hendershot did with Joshua Prince, a third year student in a class that Hendershot teaches on elder law.
Hiring a law student to write an article for your blog presents a win-win situation for all involved. The lawyer obtains quality content at reasonable rates (or perhaps at no charge, if the student can use the research for a class). The student gains valuable feedback from the lawyer as well as an opportunity to publish his or her article on the national scene. And because the student receives credit for the article, the concerns underlying ghostwriting aren’t implicated.
