Student Writers Needed

The Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journals will publish our annual New Lawyer issue next month with essays from third-year law school students and recent law school graduates. We are looking for students interested in writing about their law school experience or their experience in the legal job market. These essays should run between 800 and 1,000 words, and will feature a photo of the student. This is an excellent way for students to start to get involved in the California legal community. The New Lawyer goes to all of our subscribers, including the general counsel of most public companies in California, and to California law school students.

Students wishing to write, should send me a one-paragraph synopsis by Friday, Oct. 29. If you are selected, the essay will be due Friday, Nov. 12. You should be available for a photo session during the first week of November and available by phone and/or email for edits to your essay between Nov. 12 and Nov. 17. The New Lawyer is published on Nov. 23, with the list of names of those who passed the July bar exam.
