As Above the Law enters its fifth year, you might have noticed that we are expanding. We’ve hired two new Morning Docket writers, who also contribute other posts to the site — meet the new Docketeers here and here — and we’ve brought on board columnists to cover small law firms and social media. We will soon be adding dedicated writers to cover the in-house world. We’ve expanded the ways readers can contact us (text us at 646-820-TIPS). On the business side, we’re exploring new partnerships and revenue opportunities (e.g., flash sales).
Now we’re looking for student interns (i.e., people can receive academic credit for working with us). Our internships are educational experiences and would be excellent for journalism students, undergraduate or graduate, who are interested in blogging, new media, or legal journalism. There would be byline opportunities for aspiring writers. (If you are in law school, please look into whether or not you can get credit before you apply; we are interested only in candidates who can receive academic credit.)
Also, we’d like to hire interns who are based in New York. We want to be able to see you and have you in the office to work with us.
If you are interested and meet the criteria above, please send in a résumé and cover email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would welcome interns for either this fall semester or the coming spring semester. Our team is growing, and we’re hoping to find some new people to be a part of the fun. Thanks!
