Canadian Law of Work Forum recognizes that a lot of students find themselves in a precarious situation at the moment as a result of COVID19. It’s not much, but we are introducing a pilot Student Blogger Initiative at CLWF that will pay students $200 for a post published on the blog. At least it could buy some groceries, and add a publication line to your c.v.
Here are the details:
- To start, we are accepting posts from law students or graduate students in fields related to the study of work.
- Blog posts should be in the range of 1200 words (nothing more than 1500 as the outer max) and include any links to relevant websites.
- Blog posts can relate to any topic dealing with labour and employment law or labour policy issues. It could describe and analyze a new court or tribunal decision, or a new law for example. It could describe research you are working on. It could provide an analysis of a recent media story. Be creative.
- Submissions should be sent to Professor Doorey at firstname.lastname@example.org, in Word format and include your name and student status (university, program, and year). We will consider posts from law students have just completed law school and are waiting to article.
- We can not guarantee that every post received will be published.
We have no idea if anyone will respond to this offer, but we begin with accepting up to 5 posts as a pilot. If there is interest, we will evaluate where to go from there. Published authors will receive $200 by e-transfer and will also have a publication for the c.v.
Please contact Prof. Doorey if you have any questions. Stay safe.
