This article is for general informational purposes only and is not meant to be used or construed as legal advice in any manner whatsoever. All articles have been scrutinized by a practicing lawyer to ensure accuracy.

Hello. If you’re reading this, you’re probably keen to write or intern with us. Check out the job descriptions below and fill in the job application form at the end of this article!

 

Full-time Writer

A legal background or education isn’t necessary if you’re a quick learner (and shameless at asking lawyer contacts). Law grads, CLP students, and paralegals encouraged to apply.  

Job description

  • You will craft articles that help laypeople understand the law
  • You’ll be researching common questions and myths that many people have on how the law works
  • You’ll clarify these questions or myths in a way they can understand...
  • … without boring them out of their skulls
  • Conduct interviews with lawyers or other experts 
  • Contribute to the company culture by sharing ideas, thoughts, and memes
  • Yes, we actually encourage talking and discussion in the office :)

Requirements

  • Passionate about educating and engaging with the masses about Malaysian law
  • Can explain the law without using “henceforth” “pursuant to”, “herewith”, “ambit”, or other forms of lawyerspeak
  • Good command of English. BM proficiency is a bonus
  • Hardworking, curious, and able to think outside the box
  • Able to take and learn from criticism
  • Basic Photoshop skills would be great, but not necessary
  • Sense of humor not necessary but highly encouraged

 

Intern

If you’re a law grad, CLP student, or anyone looking to pick up new skills in law or editorial work, an internship gives you a ‘taster’ of online publishing. 

Job description

  • Work closely with the editorial team to brainstorm and craft your own articles
  • Hands-on experience with other aspects of editorial work such as video production and making coffee
  • TL;DR : What a full time writer does, but in a shorter span of time 

Requirements

  • Able to stay for at least 2 months
  • Keen to learn and pick up new skills
  • Eager to ask questions
  • Equally eager to find the answers to these questions
  • Past writing experience not necessary, but must be willing to let go of  “henceforth” “pursuant to”, “herewith”, “ambit”, or other forms of lawyerspeak

 

Freelance Writer

If you think you can contribute to our editorial team, but unable to commit to a full-time position or internship...

Job description

  • Meet with us for a one-off orientation on how to write for Asklegal 
  • Further communication will mostly be done through email
  • You submit your ideas through a pitch form, and can start writing once we give the green light
  • One or more draft revisions may be necessary
  • We only pay for articles that are published or accepted for publishing
  • We do not pay for opinion pieces

Requirements 

  • Passionate about educating and engaging with the masses about Malaysian law
  • Can explain the law without using “henceforth” “pursuant to”, “herewith”, “ambit”, or other forms of lawyerspeak
  • Good command of English (Let us know if you can write articles in BM)
  • Able to take criticism
  • Basic Photoshop skills would be great, but not necessary

Chief keyboardist at Asklegal. Don't ask me legal questions. Ask me about the tramp joke instead.
