Work with Us


Law clerk

We are looking for law clerks to help us build content for ContractStandards clients and the ContractStandards public library.

This will primarily entail drafting model contracts in accordance with the ContractStandards Style Guide and supporting attorney editors. The twist is that you will be using analytic technology to help draft agreements. This is a great opportunity (if we do say so ourselves) to work at the intersection of law and technology and get experience drafting plain language agreements.

The work is remote, so location does not matter. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Please email a resume to alex.hoover@contractstandards.com.

  • 3rd year law student or J.D. at an American Bar Association accredited law school

This is a great opportunity (if we do say so ourselves) to work at the intersection of law and technology.
