Get Published in UCLA's Undergraduate Law Journal
Interested in law? Get published in UCLA’s 2016-2017 Undergraduate Law Journal!
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE AT 10:00 PM ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2016.
If you are interested in pursuing a career in the legal field or have an interest in legal and political issues, consider becoming a writer or editor for the UCLA Undergraduate Law Journal! The UCLA Undergraduate Law Journal is open to undergraduate entries, making it one of the few undergraduate law reviews in the country modeled after the laws reviews of top law schools.
The Pre-Law Society's Undergraduate Law Journal is an annual publication of student-composed articles on law related topics. In the past, students have submitted essays covering a wide range of subjects—from dealing with recent cases and legislation to delving into topics such as public policy, economics, civil rights, international relations, legal philosophy, and legal history.
Participating undergraduates are offered a unique opportunity to contribute to a discussion of some of today's most critical issues while developing professional legal research and writing skills. Students with strong writing skills are encouraged to apply for our open positions in writing and editing. Prior writing and editing experience is helpful, but not necessary. Selected writers and editors are paired and work together from December to April in composing one article for publication.
The Undergraduate Law Journal is distributed to the TOP 50 U.S. law schools and admission directors who attend UCLA's Annual Law Forum (the largest student-run law forum in the nation). The deans and assistant deans of admission that we have spoken to have been consistently impressed by the articles that they read each year in this unique publication. Finally, this is a wonderful way to learn about legal writing and research— skills that will certainly be beneficial in the admissions process as well as in law school itself.
Any questions can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are available online at: uclaprelawsociety.org/law-journal/.
All completed applications should be emailed to: email@example.com.
