In order to become an associate member of the Mitchell Hamline Law Journal of Public Policy and Practice, candidates must participate in the write-on competition. The write-on competition involves three components: a policy or practice problem paper, a Bluebook citation worksheet, and a trial-level brief that may be either a Lawyering 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 academic school year will be extended to candidates with the best submissions. Fill out the 2020 Write-on Interest Form to receive materials for the write-on competition.
