Jonathan Lack
Hi everyone, I’m Jonathan, known for being the guy who ends up saying ‘I’m studying Russian’ at every event.

Why me:
- Understanding of Law for All’s ins and outs, having attended a number of events in 2018-2019.
- Experience creating and managing blogs at a couple of NGOs.
- Curious about issues related to law firms, commercial awareness and businesses.

My priorities upon election:
- To mix serious content with more meme tier posts (there are always good legal stories hanging around).
- To strive to create more articles about less well-explored markets, particularly non-Western markets.
- To integrate the blog with social media content and the brand new LFA podcast.
- To include more interviews and comments from the lawyers themselves.
- To maintain the fun, inclusive culture LFA already has.
Haroon Nasir
My name is Haroon and I am running for the Blog Editor position.
If elected, I hope to encourage more members to contribute to the LfA blog and increase engagement.
Alice Hart
Why am I a good fit for the role?
• This year, I have loved being a blog writer for LfA. I have a written a wide range of articles, from sponsor-centred posts, to analyses of developments in the legal and business world, to details about vac schemes. This has helped me to develop the necessary writing and editing skills for the position. I have also held previous writing positions (e.g. I was an economics writer for my school’s magazine).
• I have a decent working knowledge of business and economics through my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees (as well as a financial internship), which can help me to simplify complex news into interesting and engaging blog articles.

What would my priorities be if elected?
• Streamline the blog-writing process so that (1) each writer writes a similar number of articles; (2) articles are released on a (more) even basis; and (3) the necessary variety of articles (including sponsorship ones) are written, through a consistent monthly deadline and rotation of topics between the blog writing team.
• Liaise with the commercial awareness officers to coordinate on what is being covered and to collaborate on podcasts.
• Introduce bi-termly meetings with the blog writing team.
Amal Malik
As an aspiring lawyer with a forte in freelance writing and editing, I believe that I can help blog-writers further cultivate their writing skills and make their content both vocationally informative and highly engaging. I have had multiple national newspapers in Pakistan and a crypto-currency exchange platform publish my work. Having dabbled in freelance writing, I understand the complexities of working with multi-faceted issues and making them accessible to a broad audience – which is an integral part of editing Law for All society’s blog, as it caters to aspiring lawyers from all disciplines and backgrounds. Having worked as President and Editor-in-Chief of Her Campus UCL Magazine, I edited 5 articles on a weekly basis and pushed a team of 30 freelance writers to produce vocational, creative and whimsical content every week. This has enabled me to edit several pieces within short spans of time, which is a skill that I look forward to bringing with me as editor of the LfA blog. As an editor, I try to strike a balance between preserving authorial voice, while finding ways to make content more digestible, more informative and more entertaining, in a way that highlights the strength of the writer (whether it be humour, meticulous detail or topic expertise). To further support Her Campus writers, my team and I also held writers’ workshops, which is a tradition that I hope to introduce to LfA.

It would be my pleasure to be Editor of the LfA Blog.
