Legal writing sample for philosophy MA

Recommended Posts

I'm applying to philosophy MA programs. I got my BA in philosophy in 2005, and my JD in 2011. I have not written on philosophy since college, and have not retained any old college papers. I've been practicing appellate law (very research and writing intensive) for the past 5 years. Some schools say to submit my best writing, regardless of subject matter. Others say to submit a philosophical writing sample. Will a good legal writing sample give me a shot, or will it be disregarded?

CG, good question - I'm in the same boat. Law school a few years ago and now applying for a history PhD. All my writing samples are either law journal publications or opinions. I honestly don't have anything else but am a bit concerned that this might not be the best idea?
