Missouri Lawyers Media, the state’s largest and most expert legal news operation, is seeking a staff reporter for its St. Louis office.
We report on the business of law, the operations and decisions of the courts and the most interesting legal topics of the day. Neither a law degree nor prior experience with law firms is required, but the successful candidate will be comfortable analyzing issues and delving into complex topics to find and produce the stories buried within.
We write in a straightforward and conversational manner for an audience that is well-educated, sophisticated and well-versed in public policy, so excellent writing and a thorough knowledge of AP style are a must. The reporter will be responsible for developing a beat encompassing the city and state legal community and courts and will be expected to produce clean, clear daily print and digital content on tight deadlines while simultaneously researching and writing longer articles over several days or weeks.
The successful candidate will demonstrate ability to produce accessible and thoughtful features that convey an understanding of legal issues, experience with digital platforms and social media, enthusiasm for developing new products and story-telling techniques, and impeccable editorial judgment.
