CLOC Content Contribution Program

What is CLOC’s Content Contribution Program?

One of CLOC’s primary objectives is to provide useful content and education to our members. In particular, members are looking for resources, education and training materials, tools and tips on legal operations that can help them do their jobs more efficiently, in less time — things like:
  • White papers
  • Problem solving “how to” guides
  • Reference guides
  • Templates
  • Industry trend reports
  • Research reports
  • Case studies
  • and More
We recognize that many of our partners, vendors and suppliers are subject matter experts in the industry and have valuable insights and guidance in the legal operations space to provide. Since many of you are already producing useful and relevant resources that are insightful for the legal industry, we felt this is a great opportunity for your organization to showcase your expertise to a larger audience and solidify your support of the legal operations community. CLOC encourages the submission of authored articles and papers to be shared and accessible through the CLOC Member community and libraries. Please note that all documents are subject to review guidelines

What are we looking for?

We are looking for thought leaders and subject matter experts to help grow our content for our members, law firm participants and outside legal operations professionals.
