Ms. JD is seeking a volunteer Director for our National Women Law Students’ Organization (NWLSO) program!
NWLSO's goal is to support female law students, in whatever capacity that may be, from brainstorming events to connecting chapters and affiliates with potential speakers to providing a blogging platform where your writing will be featured on a site that receives over 27,000 visitors per month. Quite simply, NWLSO exists to support all women law students.
The volunteer NWLSO Director will work with Ms. JD’s CEO to help grow and develop Ms. JD’s NWLSO program. This includes:
-Compiling and sending a monthly NWLSO newsletter through Ms. JD’s Mailchimp account. The newsletter will feature posts from the Ms. JD blog, law student targeted articles from other sources, events of interest to law students, and job/scholarship postings;
-Creating law student-related blogs on the Ms. JD website and potentially soliciting and managing volunteers who wish to contribute law student-focused content;
-Promoting NWLSO and facilitating set-up for new chapters/ affiliate schools; and
-Assisting with planning and promoting the yearly NWLSO Leadership Academy in conjunction with Ms. JD’s CEO.
Our ideal candidate for this volunteer position enjoys writing, editing, and staying connected to what Ms. JD and other law student organizations are doing. There is a lot of opportunity to grow NWLSO and we are happy to hear suggestions that the NWLSO Director may have for additional NWLSO events, content, projects, etc. Previous experience using MailChimp is a plus, but we are happy to teach you! Previous online writing experience, particularly with Ms. JD, is also a plus but not required.
We estimate the time commitment for this position to be approximately 3 hours per week, with some variation around the NWLSO Leadership Academy.
To apply, please submit a resume and statement of interest (no more than 700 words) explaining your interest in the volunteer NWLSO Director position to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis so early submission is encouraged.
