The writing sample presents a decision problem. Candidates will be asked to make a choice between two positions or courses of action. Both of the choices are defensible, and the candidates are given the criteria and facts on which to base your decision. There is no right or wrong position to take on a particular topic, so the quality of each candidates response will not take into account the choice made, but of how well or poorly the choice is supported and how well or poorly the other choice is criticized. The writing sample is designed and validated by legal education professionals. Since it involves writing based on fact sets and criteria, the writing sample gives applicants the opportunity to demonstrate the type of argumentative writing that is required in law school, although the topics are usually nonlegal.
