Donald A Schon once said “a new idea either finds a champion or it dies.”
Others regard ideas as live entities in a constant state of flux; suspended in unseen networks right above our heads. Every so often one will escape and choose the right person at the right time.
What if that idea chose you?
Would you choose it back?
Or would you let the opportunity move on to inspire another?
This is the story of BucketOrange Magazine.
It’s the tingle at the back of your neck.
It’s the sleepless nights.
It’s the obstinate little sod that will not be quietened.
And it wants out into the world.
BucketOrange is Australia’s first and only law and life hacks magazine.
Now we know what you’re thinking: legal writing is about as interesting as reading spam. This might be true but at BucketOrange we’re upending this notion by launching a legal dialogue around YOU.
BucketOrange will take you on a journey that showcases a different side to the law – reporting on legal and other issues affecting young Australians.
Our lifestyle and entertainment writers will inform, entertain and inspire. We will demonstrate the fastest way out of a sticky situation and how to protect your personal rights. Each piece will provide practical strategies with everyday application against the backdrop of news and pop culture to make you think, laugh and share. Our travel writers will take you to the most remote and awe-inspiring places on earth. As professional adventurers they’ll navigate the longest way home and teach you what to do if you run into trouble while exploring. We will not only present in depth opinion pieces on the latest legal developments, current affairs, politics and breaking international news but also how these stories affect you.
Think of us as Lifehacker for the law.
There is one more thing that sets BucketOrange apart.
We are incredibly excited to pioneer a preventative law ideology through everyday law hacks. This is just our fancy way of saying that it’s time for a change in the Australian legal community that reflects the needs of real people. BucketOrange’s law hacks series will focus on helping you to recognise and manage small risks before they become complex legal issues requiring resolution in the courts. BucketOrange will provide perspectives on everyday legal issues and a platform for our readers to proactively assess their legal health and seek advice from competent counsel where appropriate.
This is a world first.
We hope you are as excited as we are.
It’s time to live smarter.
Are you ready?
