    Law Technology News
    Reporter
    Location: New York, NY
    Law Technology News, (www.lawtechnologynews.com) with a circulation of 43,000, is an award-winning bimonthly (6 times annually) magazine and daily website that cover how technology helps the legal profession better serve its clients. We offer news, features, and columns, as well as a daily email alert, webinars, podcasts, blogs, and more.


    Our goal is to explain legal technology in plain English, and demystify it for our readers, who represent the full bandwidth of the legal profession: from IT directors at major firms to general counsel in law departments, to solo practitioners, to technology consultants, to vendors.


    Weve been honored for editorial and design excellence by American Business Media; the American Society of Business Publications Editors; the Trade Association Business Publications International; and others.


    The reporter position involves reporting and writing about legal technology trends, new products and services, people and deals. The reporter may contribute to our "Technology on Trial" column, a case study about how technology was used in a real-life trial, and our Green Law column about how the legal profession is adopting energy-saving protocols.


    This is a junior level post, ideal for a candidate who has been a reporter or editorial assistant, with 1-2 years experience -- or a new graduate with extensive experience on a college newspaper. It's a great position for someone interested in learning about producing a magazine and website.


    The successful candidate will have a demonstrated interest in technology and how affects the business world. An understanding of the legal community would be ideal. Our staff is small and collaborative, and our pace is quick, so the successful candidate will be a self-starter. A foundation in journalism fundamentals is essential, as is the ability to multi-task and perform under very tight deadlines, with minimal supervision. There is some potential for travel to technology events. Experience with Microsoft Word is essential; experience with inCopy, KV and/or inDesign, and Web publishing systems a plus.


    Qualified candidates should submit resume and cover letter with salary requirements to opportunities@alm.com for immediate consideration.


    Only candidates selected for interviews will be contacted. No phone calls or agencies please. ALM is an equal opportunity employer that encourages and values diversity. M/F/D/V
