In recent years, some influential mainstream media and new media have launched “warm-story” programme, which is favored by the masses of the people. However, there are many problems with the spread of warm stories, such as clickbait, superficial content, fake news, and the vague concept of rules of law. How to overcome these problems, how to write warm stories so that they can spread legally, how to develop warm stories in the future, and how to conduct legal communication with warm stories are all critical issues that must be addressed right now. This paper looks at what warm-story is, how it works, and what it says. It also talks about how warm-story is used in legal communication and what strategies can be used.
