Law Student’s Q&A Line

The “Jewish Law Student’s Q & A Line” page is an interactive Forum for the Jewish law student who is interested in and committed to the observance of Halacha. The Forum provides an opportunity for Jewish law students (and budding ones) to communicate with experienced lawyers who share in the same interest and commitment. Whether it is a question or comment about Halacha and secular law, what it’s like to practice law, or about job hunting and interviewing — we’ll try to give you a “real life” answer.

The Forum is administered and moderated by a select group of Orthodox practitioners and law professors, judges, etc. who have volunteered their time to assist and mentor aspiring students. Questions and comments may be directed to one or more of the mentors — see below — by sending an e-mail to Please specify if your question and the response to it should be disseminated to the listserv for this Forum or not.

If you wish to be part of a listserv for this Forum, please send an an e-mail with a subject of “SUBSCRIBE.”
