A Guide to Law for Citizen Media Creators

guide to law

The guide to law is intended for citizen media creators without formal legal training and others who need help gathering, organizing, and presenting information on law-related topics. It covers practical issues related to gathering and using legal information online, including how to search for and use law resources, write clear and concise text, format your work for publication, and deal with copyright issues.


When writing an article on law, make sure to choose a topic that is interesting and well-researched. The first step is to identify the main points of your subject and then organize them into a structured article. Usually, articles are easier to read when the structure is organized into subheadings and bullet points. This will help the reader get what he wants quickly, and it will make it easier for him to decide whether to read the article or not.


The general public does not understand big legal jargons. Therefore, it is important to keep your language simple and understandable to the common people. This will not only allow the readers to understand your point of view, but it will also be easier for them to read.

Citation style

To ensure that the references in your work are cited properly, it is advisable to use APA citations. These should be inserted in the body of your document and not in footnotes. This will save you from the risk of accidentally deleting your references. It will also be more convenient for the readers as it does not require them to look through footnotes or use the back button of their browser.
