I decided I'd enter my opinion on this matter.
I think time would be better spent looking for a job and looking for contacts than concocting writing samples.
 
Writing such samples would be bold and strange. It would demonstrate initiative and deviation from the norm. There is some special employer out there that would view such efforts positively. Most people would just find it weird.
 
Thinking outside the box is perhaps not the best first career move ... unless you truly want to live outside the box.
 
If you're trying to get a law firm job ... you need to think in the box. You need to think so in the box so as to forget the box is there. Be in the box.
