Law Student Concerns About Employment Merits Blogging Program at Law Schools

Edward Grazda. Zunil, Guatemala

With a LexisNexis study finding 81% of law students concerned about employability, law schools should look at creative programs such as “Student Blogs” offered at BroadwayWorld – even if their program is a might more creative than a law school’s.

Our student bloggers write about how they’re coping with the current global health crisis, give insight on their school’s performing arts programs, share their opinions on the latest theater news and more.”

BroadwayWorld’s blog policy may even be appropriate for law schools.

“Blogs are the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of BroadwayWorld. BroadwayWorld believes in providing a platform for open and constructive conversation.”

Legal blogging on niches while in law school lands law grads good jobs.

Reputations and relationships are built. So much so that some legal blogging grads need not even apply for a job on graduation, they are solicited to work in niches for the grads have a noticeable passion to work in.

What are law schools waiting for? There need not be legal blogging classes for credit, but a school program that provides the basics and support on legal blogging would help grads.

Law schools seem ready to offer classes and programs on legal tech and innovation. The reason being, employability.

Legal blogging, in addition to employability, improves a core skill for lawyers, one hundred years ago, and today, strong writing.
