Hey, P.R. guys...

Like other legal bloggers, I now get a steady stream of inquiries from public relations people angling for coverage. A few guidelines, speaking for myself and not the other contributors to the site:

Best bet: review-copy offers for relevant non-fiction books. Please don't pitch fiction, even when law-related. If in doubt whether a non-fiction title is relevant to our interests here, spend a moment using the site's search function.

Also a good bet: launches of new free online media entities relevant to our interests (such as, or again).

Not a good bet: Newsmaker interviews, even when relevant. I don't think I've ever done a newsmaker interview as such for the site. (Of course this doesn't mean newsmakers or anyone else should hesitate to email us if they think we should know about something, just that the interview format isn't our thing.)

Even worse bet: Vendors of services purchased by law firms, compliance and document-management software, etc. Not our area at all.
