Legal Writer with Expertise in Federal Courts (Remote)
Who You Are
- A smart lawyer: You love the law. You were a star student in law school. You genuinely enjoy reading and dissecting case law. You have a knack for breaking down difficult concepts and explaining them clearly and concisely.
- An expert in federal courts: You have extensive experience in federal courts, and have likely practiced, taught, or published on the topic.
- An outstanding writer: You’re passionate about good writing. In addition to your substantive knowledge, you bring a mastery of grammar, spelling, and style guides. You could teach composition 101 at a top university.
- An excellent communicator: You communicate clearly, effectively, and politely with your teammates. In fact, you believe in “overcommunicating,” because you understand that lack of communication is the root cause of a dysfunctional team.
- A detail-oriented, tech-savvy, self-starter: You’re comfortable with technology generally and eager to learn. You’re disciplined and motivated, the kind of person who doesn’t need someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you’re doing your job.
