WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
If you’re enthusiastic about helping us reach out to law students, bar exam takers, and young lawyers — and you’ve got the relevant skills to do so — we want to talk to you!
Specifically, we’re looking for:
- Creative, enthusiastic applicants who have useful skills and experience but are also eager to learn and grow.
- The ability to get things done — consistently and competently.
- Basic technical competence, including using tools such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Skype, Trello, etc.
- The ability to work independently and virtually (without extensive ongoing supervision).
- Experience with law school and/or the legal profession is a plus, but is not required. We welcome applications from law students, law graduates, and people thinking about law school.
WHAT WE OFFER
We work with law students, bar exam takers, and young lawyers across the country to help them achieve their goals. We maintain multiple websites, email lists, and social media channels at Law School Toolbox, Bar Exam Toolbox, and The Girl’s Guide to Law School, we run a popular podcast, and we write frequently for other websites.
Members of our outreach team:
- Are location-independent and make their own schedules. All work is done virtually, so a reliable internet connection is a must.
- Are compensated on a per-post basis as independent contractors.
- Receive ongoing support in a learning-focused, collaborative environment.
- Work part time, and may go to school or have other jobs as well. It’s a great opportunity for a side hustle!
WANT TO BE A FREELANCE WRITER?

- The ability to work independently and consistently produce publishable content on a defined schedule.
- The ability (and desire) to learn quickly and write on a variety of topics.
