Member Job Openings

Legal Reporter, National Law Journal, Washington DC

posted December 16, 2016


You’d be covering the federal judiciary and high-stakes court battles in Washington for a global, digital-first news organization. We need someone who loves talking to sources, knows how to mine a beat for scoops and can find insights in legal stories that are often well covered by mainstream news outlets. This is a high-profile assignment, and we are looking for an individual who is equipped to break news, write sophisticated analysis and have a voice on social media.


  • Must be able to write clearly, engagingly and authoritatively—and on a deadline.
  • Must be able to establish and nurture relationships with lawyers, judges and lawmakers.
  • Must thrive in a fast-paced environment and have the ability to juggle a stream of daily stories on tight deadlines with features and analysis.
  • Must be creative, curious and enthusiastic about using social platforms, video, interactive data, and other digital tools to enhance reporting and connect with readers.
  • At least three years experience in a daily news environment. Some experience with legal or business journalism is preferred.


Law.com’s global litigation team is focused on cutting edge legal issues, consequential court cases, emerging trends in litigation—and the lawyers, judges and other professionals who are part of that world. We cover geographic centers including New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami and Atlanta, and our team includes a mix of senior and more junior reporters working collaboratively with editors across the country. Our team is committed to quality journalism and innovative thinking as we cover this area for a demanding and sophisticated business audience.


Please email to vblum@alm.com a few paragraphs detailing your interest and why you’re a good fit for this job. Include a resume and three to five clips that display your ability to break news, write engaging features, and offer a fresh or authoritative take on your subject matter.
