Writing sample

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I was asked to provide two writing samples. It is the first time I am asked for it. I did not write anything for publication. Would something from law school ( graduated several years ago) be appropriate or write something for this specific purpose? 

I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks

I think a paper or excerpt of a paper could suffice (if the paper is really long). I also recall using a memo I wrote pursuant to a fact pattern for a particular class.

If you're in doubt, you could always clarify with the employer what kind of writing sample they would prefer.

If you have been working in a related legal field, redact all identifying information from legal documents, and present a piece of legal work. It is the best gauge for employers as to how well you write and how you present a case.
