ABOUT THE TEAM: The In-House Desk at ALM is in charge of covering one of the most interesting and important beats for the future of the legal industry: corporate law departments and the general counsel who run them. Reporters on the desk have the opportunity to delve into some of the big business and legal issues affecting these attorneys today. We are a collegial and enthusiastic group of reporters spread across the country, and we are determined to find out what makes in-house lawyers tick. Reporters on the desk write both web stories and feature-length content for Corporate Counsel, ALM's magazine for in-house legal.
ABOUT THE JOB: This reporter will cover corporate legal departments with a strong focus on Silicon Valley and Big Tech. With social media giants like Facebook and Twitter and multi-industry companies like Uber and Alphabet becoming corporate leaders, in-house counsel around the world are looking at how Silicon Valley’s legal departments handle matters from data privacy to diversity and inclusion. Silicon Valley coverage will even expand to other tech clusters like Seattle, where Amazon.com and Microsoft are based; Silicon Prairie in the Midwest, Silicon Hill in Texas, and Silicon Beach in Los Angeles. This is an exciting, forward-looking beat, and one that is very important both to ALM and our readers.
In addition to what’s outlined above, there will be opportunities to write about general counsel career development and international issues, as we are working on expanding coverage in both these areas. This is not a position for a courts reporter, though on some rare occasions, the reporter might be asked to write about litigation, particularly if an in-house counsel is prominently involved with a case. The job will be based in San Francisco and be supervised by the in-house editor in Los Angeles.
