Dear Ms. Bertner:
Throughout my time as a student at Saint Louis University School of Law, I have participated in
activities to develop my skills in preparation for a career as a litigator. I argued successfully as part of
our winning National Moot Court Team, and won several mock trial competitions. Additionally, I
clerked throughout law school for a litigation firm in St. Louis, where I worked on numerous matters,
including a personal injury case which resulted in a $7 million verdict for our client.
I have read about Bertner, Smith, Linihan & Blig in the National Law Journal and in American Lawyer,
and admire your litigation practice. I was particularly excited to discover that you have a personal
injury practice, as evidenced by the recent article in the New York Law Journal.
As I approach the end of my time at law school, I am seeking a legal career in personal injury litigation
in New York. I have registered to take the New York bar exam in July, and will relocate to New York
City immediately following my graduation in May 2009. Additionally, I will be in New York the first two
weeks of January 2009, and would be delighted to meet with you during that time.
I am very interested in working as an associate with Bertner, Smith, Linihan & Blig and enclose my
resume for your review. I will contact your office in two weeks to determine if additional information is
needed. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting with you.
