VerdictSearch, a division of ALM, seeks an experienced reporter for its family of publications that report civil court cases from around the country.
The ideal candidate possesses at least one year of experience at a daily or weekly print publication. Knowledge of the law is helpful but not a necessity -- we can teach you anything you’ll need to know. However, an aggressive personality is a must. You’ll file 13 reports a week, and that task entails a great deal of telephone work. You will be expected to make upward of 50 calls a week, and you will often have to extract information from uncooperative sources. There’s not a lot of glamour, but you’ll hone your interviewing skills, your lead-pursuit skills and your ability to produce a great volume of work in a deadline-oriented environment.

Up for the challenge? Please submit clips and a resume that includes at least three professional references.

This is a full-time, 9-to-5 position in our Brooklyn office. Thus, we cannot accommodate freelancers or telecommuters.

No telephone calls, please. We will contact those candidates whose skills best meet our needs.


ALM places a high value on employees and strives to be an employer of choice. To that end we offer competitive salaries, professional growth opportunities, and a comprehensive selection of benefits that include: medical, dental, vision, 401(K) and life insurance options.

Qualified candidates should submit resume and cover letter with salary requirements to opportunities@alm.com for immediate consideration. Only candidates selected for interviews will be contacted. No phone calls or agencies please. ALM is an equal opportunity employer that encourages and values diversity. M/F/D/V
