Lawyers commonly write as their clients' representatives, but many lawyers also do "extracurricular writing" in non-representational roles. A few years ago in Precedent (The Missouri Bar's former quarterly magazine), I wrote about lawyers who publish newspaper op-ed columns (essays appearing "opposite the editorial pages") and letters to the editor. The present two-part article explores three additional extracurricular writing opportunities open to lawyers. In the Journal's January-February issue, Part 1 discussed writing or co-writing in law reviews. Part 2 now concludes by discussing writing opportunities in bar association journals and on blogs.
