Apply to Be a Writing Fellow

Candidates apply in the spring semester to serve as Writing Fellows during the following academic year. All rising 2L, 3L, and 4L students who enjoy legal writing are encouraged to apply. Fellows must make a two-semester commitment to the program and are eligible to reapply for a second year.

Details of the application process are announced in January of each year through flyers posted around the law-school campus, the Keeping It Brief (KIB) Academic Newsletter, the SBA newsletter, and FL small sections. Applications can be accessed and submitted through a TWEN page updated each year to reflect the next academic year. Accordingly, the TWEN page for the 2021-22 academic year was titled “2022-2023 DF + WF Applications.” Writing Fellow hiring decisions are announced by the end of the Spring semester.
