I am launching a website called LegalConvo.com which connects clients with screened local attorneys based on their preferences.

One of the features of this site will be the legal blog, which will be a mix of black letter law blogs, casual blogs, and semi-professional blogs covering every legal topic.

Whether you're analyzing the implications of a celebrity case that's ongoing, or listing things that the cops cannot ask you to do, it is welcome on the blog.

If you can write around 15 short blog articles, I will give you a personalized letter of recommendation, and you can boost your resume by showing that you actually like legal research and writing. It won't take you much time. And if this site ends up becoming the next LegalZoom, I won't forget you.

You will get full credit on the actual blog itself as well.

Send me a message if you're interested.


F-You. NO ONE is trying to work for FREE. NO ONE.
