In Discovery by Thine is a platform designed to help legal professionals learn, develop, connect, and consider new possibilities for their careers, as well as the future of the legal profession.

We also hope to be a platform where diverse perspectives, experiences, advice, and stories are shared. We’d like to hear from law students, summer associates, and lawyers—whether you’re practicing, searching for a job, or considering what’s next.

What we're looking for

Outlook + Op-ed
At Thine, we invite and encourage others to imagine new possibilities. To that end, we want to hear your innovative take on an aspect of the legal industry or legal careers. This could include a new program, legal technology, or a piece of research that can shift the way lawyers practice or the legal profession works. Or, you might explore how law is intersecting with other fields like business, tech, health, or culture.

Share your perspective in roughly 850 - 1200 words.

Lawyer to Lawyer Interviews
Do you know a fellow law student, law grad, or lawyer that has a compelling story or experience?  Perhaps there is someone that you’d like to ask for advice or hear about the work they’ve been doing? We are actively looking for pieces for our upcoming Lawyer to Lawyer series.

In this format, you’ll share a paragraph about your interviewee to give some context for your conversation, followed by an edited transcript of your 10-minute chat about some aspect of their legal career, legal work, or other experience. 

Your Stories + Perspectives
How did you get where you are now? What are you doing to get where you want to go? Was there a mentor that influenced or empowered you, a challenge you’ve had to overcome, or an experience that shifted your interest to a particular area of the law?

Share your story or experience with us in short essay form (roughly 850 - 1200 words).

A few more details...

Style
We prefer to keep the style conversational, so write as if you were speaking with your audience over lunch. You can find a few examples of our content to reference our style, tone, and voice further here. 

Our audience 
Our audience consists of lawyers, recent law school grads, law students, and other professionals within the legal industry space. In general, we tend to write for law students and lawyers interested in career development or innovation for themselves, their colleagues, or others.

Other elements
Photos, charts, graphs, or other visuals are encouraged. Make sure any visuals are properly authorized for use and/or properly credited. If you are submitting a personal essay or Lawyer to Lawyer interview, we encourage you to include authorized, original photos of the person or yourself.
