The Sports and Entertainment Law Journal provides an excellent opportunity for students to refine their legal research and writing skills. Every semester, Journal staff conduct several cite and source reviews of scholarly articles slated for upcoming publication in the Journal. Members also write and edit peer commentaries considered for publication in the Journal or its website. Consequently, Journal candidates must demonstrate both Bluebook proficiency and an ability to write effectively and clearly.
Membership on the Journal is open to all DU law students, including 1L and transfer students. We welcome and support all DU law students to write-on.
The Sports and Entertainment Law Journal hosts a write-on competition in the fall and spring semesters.
The write-on competition includes four parts:
1. A short footnote assignment, similar to those submitted by Staff Editors as we edit articles and verify their contents;
2. A two-page writing assignment on a Sports and Entertainment law topic;
3. An evaluation of your current resume; and
4. A personal statement and description of yourself, containing any information regarding why you want to join the journal and anything else you want us to know about you.
Interested candidates should attend Derby Days during the first week of the fall semester, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
