Applying Labor and Employment Lawyer Position


Dear Mr. Smith,

My ambition to become an attorney has always been synonymous with my desire to practice labor and employment law. In pursuit of this goal, I recently earned both a Juris Doctor with a Labor and Employment Law Certificate and a master’s degree in Human Resources from Antioch University. Presently, I am planning to relocate to the Washington, D.C., area to be at the forefront of this rapidly evolving field. As such, I wish to apply for a position as a first-year associate at your firm.

My graduate studies in both law and human resources have enabled me to gain valuable insight into the most current legal issues affecting the workplace. I conducted classroom presentations on many of these issues, such as employment discrimination, sexual harassment, union disputes, and Workers’ Compensation. As employment law is an expansive discipline, I have also gained experience in areas such as administrative and criminal law in order to understand this area from diverse perspectives.

Throughout law school, I have taken advantage of every opportunity to apply what I learned in the classroom to real-world situations. Through internships and numerous community-service activities, I have assisted people from diverse backgrounds with a variety of concerns. As a result, I have developed excellent communication skills and a keen ability to assess individual clients’ needs. Each experience, both academic and work related, also afforded me the opportunity to develop the necessary research, writing, and analytical skills required of a first-class attorney.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you and further discuss my qualifications. I will contact you to set a time that is convenient for you. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Very truly yours,
