Virginia Lawyers Weekly, a legal newspaper dedicated to providing the latest legal news, is looking for a lawyer/journalist who likes to write and to analyze legal decisions.


We need an opinion editor, someone who reviews all the cases we get in a given week and prepares easy-to-read digests of those cases for our newspaper and website.  The job also involves recommending cases for stories. We need someone who can spot legal issues and who can get the essence of a decision, then communicate it quickly.


Job requirements include an understanding of law practice, familiarity with the courts in Virginia and a strong sense of organization.  A law license is required, preferably from Virginia. Past journalistic experience and past legal experience both are highly useful.


This is a great opportunity for lawyer who would enjoy a job that is essentially telling other lawyers what happened last week.
