Each year, the Temple University Beasley School of Law holds the Write-On Competition to determine the student membership of its four student-run, scholarly journals:
- Temple Law Review
- Temple Journal of Science, Technology & Environmental Lawm
- Temple International & Comparative Law Journal
- Temple Political & Civil Rights Law Review
Each journal has its own selection criteria, but the Write-On process is the only way to become a staff member of one of these publications.
The Write-On Competition begins after the last 1L exam and lasts for ten days. To compete in the Write-On Competition, each student must purchase or download a packet of materials and write a ten-page Note discussing and analyzing the selected cases, statutes, and secondary sources. The packet of materials includes all rules, instructions, additional exercises, and forms. Students may not conduct any other research during the competition.
