Are you looking to submit your work to our law review articles database? While we are not a law school, ClearWay Law is now offering a law review service for the public.
Law students submit the essays or other work they wrote in law school. It works the same way as law review. We then post the article and include your name and law school.
You can then add to your resume that you wrote for us, and send links to your work when articling. 30,000 people visit our blogs per month. It’s a great way to get exposure.
We want to help law students get articling positions. It’s our way of giving back. Make sure to check out our blogs to learn more about us.
You can read our list of law review articles. We want to greatly expand our number of articles. You can even submit if you are already a lawyer. Getting published helps people find your law practice. You can include your name and name of your law firm.
Law School Journal Review
We are interested in receiving articles from the University of Toronto (u of t), UBC, UVIC, and Queen’s. We are also open to any other law schools in Canada.
We are also publishing law review articles from other countries. We have received submissions from India, Pakistan, Australia, and England.
Most law students don’t realize how hard it is to get articling positions. They assume that once they finish their 2-3 years of law school, they will easily get a position at a law firm. This is 100% not true.
Many people cannot become lawyers because they cannot find an articling position. To be honest, if you cannot convince a managing partner to hire you, you likely will not make a good lawyer.
Law Review Canada And Other Countries
When you are a lawyer, you must be able to convince a judge to rule in favour of your client. Even if you are a solicitor, you must be able to convince clients to hire you.
As a law student, you need to do everything you can to be competitive. Writing for ClearWay Law, which is a well known legal company in BC and Ontario, will add to your resume.
A managing partner can click on the link for the articles you submitted, and examine some of your work.
Law Review Articles Database
We are trying to create a law review articles database to give back to the legal community. We do not benefit from this. We want to help law students.
Future law students will be able to read your work and improve on it. That is the purpose of academia. Of course, they will not be able to plagiarise, or they will be caught by the software that law schools use.
When reaching out to law firms to ask for articles, do not write something similar to the below email…
I hope this note finds you well. I am a recent graduate of the J.D program at the University of Toronto and I am writing to inquire about the availability of an articling position at your firm. As a multilingual, dynamic individual with a strong work ethic and excellent research, writing and analytical skills, I believe that I would make an excellent addition to your firm.
Please find enclosed my resume and cover letter. I can provide my transcripts upon request.
If you have any questions about my experiences at law school, please ask.
Thank you for your consideration.
Criminal Law Review | Law Review Articles Database
The above email isn’t terrible, but it’s not great. You need to know that managing partners and law firms managers get five of these emails per day. The problem is that it puts the onus on the law firm manager to request further information. You need to make things as easy as possible when reaching out to someone.
Did they get A’s in law school? Is there a quick way to review some of the law students work? This is why including a link to your essays would work well. It’s quick and it makes you stand out.
We are interested in articles for our database for any of the subjects taught in law school. For some reason, most of the articles that are sent are for criminal law.
You can also see our article on Legal Eagle, the Youtube Channel. He creates videos for law students that is super helpful. He talks about how important law review can be as a resume builder. He is a top lawyer in Washington DC who got straight A’s in law school.
In conclusion, if you want to submit for our law review articles database, then fill out a form on this website. You can also message our CEO on Linkedin and say you want to contribute. Further, you can submit the articles to avigier at clearway law dot com.
