The National Law Review (NLR) publishes legal news from the nation's premier law firms, law schools, regulatory agencies, and our own journalists and we also cross-promote several legal and other professional events per month.
We are one of the highest-volume business law websites in the United States. We work with very large law firms, so you must have an incredible eye for detail and be a consummate professional. We're a website and you will be working with and possibly learning to lead a small team publishing group to format and promote contributed content on a daily basis and manage a weekly editorial schedule for a limited amount of original thought leadership. We publish all day, so we have some flexibility in scheduling but require a minimum of a three-day-a-week commitment (for part-time 25+ hours with scaled-down responsibilities) or we can do full-time salaried, with either role needing availability during core US business hours. The candidate will be learning how to publish legal news in a fast-paced environment, we require experience with SEO, social media, and creating formatting content for news websites.
