WRITING SAMPLES

Introduction

A good lawyer must be an excellent writer. Often as part of the job search process, potential employers will ask to see samples of your legal writing. You should carefully select the writing sample you intend to submit as it may well form the basis of an employer's opinion about the overall quality of your writing skills. A good writing sample alone will probably not get you a job, but a poor writing sample may very well prevent you from getting an offer.
