The Wall Street Journal

Bureau Chief, Law
The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced journalist to join our U.S. news leadership team as Law Bureau Chief. In this job, you will run the Journal's U.S. legal coverage, the scope of which is as vast as the topic itself, and in which nearly every story is ripe with the drama of conflict. The subject terrain is exciting: white-collar criminal cases; mass civil litigation brought against the biggest corporate defendants; constitutional clashes over freedom of speech and religion and the rights of the accused; and the personalities and institutions that wield power at the center of the legal system. The topics your team will cover involve some of the most polarizing in the nation: guns, the death penalty, elections and voting access, and abortion, and touch on all facets of American life, from politics to sports; entertainment to real estate; finance to technology. It is an exciting time to be covering the U.S. and this job is at the heart of shaping our coverage. You will report to Emily Nelson, the U.S. News Coverage Chief. While you will likely start the job working remotely, you will eventually be based in our New York office.
