Join the Journal

The Law Journal and Journal of Law and Public Policy team up each year to hold a "write-on" competition through which both journals gain new members from the University of St. Thomas School of Law student body. The competition is held the week after 1L spring semester finals each year, and involves a 10-page closed memo assignment and an editing exercise. The Journal accepts approximately 24 new members from each 1L class, 12 of which may gain entry through a good faith effort on the competition combined with their class rank after 1L year, and 12 of which gain entry through competition score alone. Part-time students and transfer students may also be eligible to compete.

Outside of the write-on competition, students may gain entry to the Journal if their Note or Comment is accepted for publication. Visit the Submissions page for more information about submitting a student piece.

An informational lunch regarding the write-on is held before the end of second semester -- look for announcements at that time. Students are also encouraged to attend Journal symposia throughout the year. If you have any questions about Journal membership, contact next year's Membership Editor, Gabrielle Kolb at gabrielle.kolb@stthomas.edu.

Candidates must request and complete registration in advance of the write-on competition to be eligible. The last date of registration for the 2022-23 competition is May 14th by 11:59 PM. The write-on competition will take place from May 15th to May 23rd. To receive more information on registration, please email Gabrielle Kolb at gabrielle.kolb@stthomas.edu.
