Abstract

Most law students have never prepared a writing sample for a prospective employer. While all 1Ls will have something that they can use as a writing sample, most students will have several basic questions about editing, organizing and presenting their work in a way that places their application in the strongest light. In the following materials, I have tried to anticipate and answer these questions. My hope is that students who follow these simple instructions will improve their chances of obtaining legal employment.
