In order to become a member of the William Mitchell Journal of Law & Practice, candidates must participate in the Write-On Competition. The Write-On Competition involves three components: a cover letter (excluding name, GPA, and class rank), a Bluebook citation test, and either a WRAP memorandum or an Advocacy brief.
All students who have completed their 1L year may participate in the Write-On Competition. The write-on process is competitive by nature. Membership invitations for the 2014-2015 academic school year will be extended to the candidates with the best submissions. However, the Journal will reserve most of its membership invitations for 2Ls and part-time 3Ls.
The sign-up deadline for the 2014-2015 school year has passed.
To participate in the Write-On Competition, prospective candidates must sign-up online by Monday, September 29, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.
