If you know law students who have done stong written work, you may want to encourage them to submit their work to a writing competition. Some competitions receive few entries, many award monetary prizes, and any award would look good on a resume.
One listing of writing competitions for law students can be found at: http://www.law.du.edu/writing/competitions.cfm
