¡Bienvenidos a Law Raza!
If you are interested in joining the William Mitchell Law Raza Journal, please complete the following process before the formal writing competition begins in Spring 2013!
I. Letter of Intent
The William Mitchell Law Raza Journal began as – and continues to grow as – a student led initiative comprised of an editorial staff committed to discussing issues of race and the law. We would like to know about you and your interest in joining our Journal.
You may write up to 2 double-spaced pages explaining why you would like to be a part of Law Raza. You are free to decide what you would like to share with us.
II. Bluebook Citation Exercise
The Bluebook citation exercise is designed to test your ability to recognize and correct citation errors.
You must correct the footnotes according to relevant Bluebook rules.
You should need nothing other than the Bluebook, a dictionary, and some knowledge of grammar and punctuation. Emphasis will be on the application of Bluebook rules.
The citations in this exam are fictional. Do not waste your time trying to find the citations in other law review articles. Do not change the numbers within the citations, such as page numbers or dates.
The Bluebook exercise is attached to this document. The exercise includes 15 citations. Presume, for the purposes of the exam, that these 15 endnotes are consecutive endnotes taken from a single article.
Each citation may have one error, no errors, or multiple errors.
Make all necessary corrections in Microsoft Word, using the track changes option.
Submit an electronic copy of your Letter of Intent and Bluebook Citation exercise to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a title page with your name, phone number and email.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
