The New Editorial Submissions System

Changes to The Legal 500 Submission process – what you need to know

The Legal 500 has reviewed its submissions apparatus to make it easier and more straightforward for firms to put forward information to our research team, and also to improve the efficiency of the research process, meaning we can spend more time interviewing firms and clients. The review is part of a wider development process which will in due course make that information and research more accessible to clients on a reconfigured and improved website.

How does the new submission process work?

If you would like more information on the changes to the application process and how they will apply to the relevant guide for which you are submitting, please email submissions@legal500.com.

Firms applying for our guides now have the following options:

  • use the online form to fill in and submit their submissions. You can save a draft of your online form at any time while you’re working on it. You can also generate a preview of the form for the purposes of printing off/circulating among various stakeholders for sign off of content. Once the form is completed and you hit publish, no further changes can be made by the firm. Any subsequent amends should be emailed to editorial@legal500.com.

  • download and use the template Word document. This is a replica of the online form which you can fill in offline. You can access the form here. Please refer to your relevant guide below for further guide-specific information.

How do I access the online form?

Firms will have been emailed login details to access our online portal. If your firm has not received a login, please email submissions@legal500.com to request access.

The online form can be accessed at the following link: https://submissions.legal500.com/.

How do I fill it in?

When filling in the form, please refer to the editorial guidelines. These can be found by scrolling down the page and clicking on the banner relevant to your jurisdiction. The guidelines/FAQs/referee spreadsheets will be accessible from the expanded content.

I’ve already begun to compile my submissions using a different template – do I need to switch to the new online form?

The new submission process is the only way firms will be able to submit for the 2019 guide.
