The award-winning ACC Docket is the journal of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) and the premier publication for in-house counsel. Each issue delivers timely news and practical advice you can apply to your daily practice. The ACC Docket has a circulation of more than 35,000 readers worldwide, including ACC members, corporate counsel who practice in law firms and law students.
In-house attorneys or author teams that consist of at least one in-house attorney can write for the magazine. Membership in ACC is not required. Manuscripts must be the original work of the authors(s) and not previously published or simultaneously submitted to another publication. Self-promotional articles are not accepted.
Successful ACC Docket articles are sophisticated how-to articles. They provide practical, nuts-and-bolts information that's directly relevant to the day-to-day practice of in-house counsel. For example, an article addressing how in-house counsel could respond to a recent important court decision probably would be published; an article covering only the court's reasoning probably would not be. Each issue of the ACC Docket covers a specific topic, in depth. See the editorial calendar for a list of upcoming topics.
The majority of ACC's members and therefore ACC Docket readers are attorneys in law departments of 20 or fewer attorneys. Many within this group are the only attorneys employed by their companies. Write your article with these small or single-person law departments in mind.
