Posting Guidelines

The mandate of the Precedent A-List is to share timely and relevant news about career advancement and job opportunities for lawyers.

Please refer to these guidelines when posting on the Precedent A-List:

    • New associates
    • New partners
    • Lateral hires
    • New managing partners
    • Awards won
    • Certified specialist achievements

Note: Announcements are for individual lawyers only. On occasions when an announcement pertains to more than one lawyer, please split the notice into individual posts.

Firm announcements

  • Any announcement highlighting a firm’s achievement or new initiative, including:
    • The launch/introduction of a new product or service (re-launches of existing products or services will not be accepted)
    • The introduction of a new firm (or firm merger) to the market

Job postings

  • Any job opportunity that seeks candidates who are qualified lawyers

Note: Postings for paralegals and other legal support staff will not be accepted.
Please do not list multiple jobs in a single post. One credit is for one specific job post.
