The Role

We are looking for law school grads to work with Upsolve as content writers, writing articles for lay audiences about bankruptcy, student loans, debt collection, foreclosure, repossession, creditor harassment, debt settlement, debt consolidation, etc.

You must have a proven track record of writing online educational content for lay audiences. We're looking for very knowledgeable attorneys who are very good at communicating complex topics to regular people who have no background in consumer law or finance.

Writers will work closely with our Managing Editor. 

You're a good fit if:
  • You're a law school grad

  • You have availability to produce 10+ articles per month

  • You're very good at writing about complex topics for a lay audience

How to Apply?

To apply, please email rohan@upsolve.org three things: (1) a bit about yourself and why you feel like you'd be a good fit; (2) 2-3 writing samples, which are ideally online pieces relating to finance/law; (3) your resume.

We'll be in touch if we believe we may be a good fit.



Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Spun out of Harvard Law School, our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can’t access their basic rights when they can’t afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.

To learn more, read why we started Upsolve in 2016, our reviews from past users, and our press coverage from places like the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
