When an employer asks for a writing sample at an interview, does it necessarily have to be a legal writing sample (i.e. memo, appellate brief etc...) or can it be a policy paper or essay?

Yes, it must be a legal writing sample if you're applying for a legal job. Most people use their memo or app ad brief. Keep it to 10 pages or so...
