Registering as a Lawclerk takes four simple steps after you click on the “get started” button on the homepage.
Step 1: Enter your name and email address and create a password.
Step 2: Lawclerk.Legal must verify your identity and that you have graduated from an ABA accredited law school. As such, either take a picture with your computer or upload a picture of your driver’s license or other valid government ID positioned next to your face. Please make sure that both your ID and your face are clearly visible in the picture. You may need to hold your ID closer to the camera to ensure that your picture and the name on your ID are clearly visible. This picture will only be used to verify your identity. It will not be your profile picture and will not be used for any other purpose. Then, upload evidence that you have graduated from an ABA accredited law school, such as a copy or picture of your transcript or diploma. Lawclerk.Legal will complete the verification process within 24 hours of submission and often within a few minutes of submission.
Step 4: Create your bio. Here, you can either upload your resume or type in your bio. When you apply for a Project, the Attorney that posted the Project will be able to view your profile in connection with selecting a Lawclerk to complete his or her Project. You may also submit a profile picture and a writing sample; however, both of these are optional. Once you are registered as a Lawclerk, you can change your bio at any time. Additionally, if you want to be notified about Projects that are posted in a particular area of law or project type, you may (but are not required to) make those selections here as well. You can update your bio at any time by clicking on your name in the top right corner of your dashboard.
Once you are verified (which always takes less than 24 hours and sometimes takes only a few minutes), you will be able to review and apply for Projects that have been posted by Attorneys.
