NYU School of Law's Office of Communications is looking for a few talented student writers to blog about their opinions, ideas, and experiences for Life at NYU Law, the Law School's official student blog.
The position is unpaid. Bloggers will write one or two short posts a month, gaining an opportunity to reach a wide audience and showcase their abilities as legal thinkers and writers.
While this blog is geared toward prospective students, it will be heavily publicized and high-profile, and read by prospective employers, alumni, faculty, peer schools, the media, and anyone else who visits the Law School website.
JD, LLM, and JSD students are all encouraged to apply. Interested? E-mail the Office of Communications a paragraph or two explaining why you want to be a blogger for the official NYU Law student blog, and include all of your contact information. The deadline for applying for Fall 2014 is September 5, 2014. Please send your application (and any questions) to Atticus Gannaway at email@example.com.
Any lingering questions before you apply? Tracy Huang '14 can tell you about her experience as an NYU Law student blogger. E-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, Tracy has this to say:
"Why should you blog for NYU Law? Well, it's a lot of fun! First, blogging was a great way for me to contribute to the greater law school community. I am able to reach a diverse audience—everyone from prospective students to current students to alumni—and share my experiences in hopes that the audience can use it as a springboard for their own adventures. Second, it has been a great way for me to enrich my own law school experience. Because I always wanted something interesting to say, I became more inclined to observe and reflect carefully on what was around me for the last three years. I am glad I chose to pursue this activity during law school."
