This - details here - could be an awesome opportunity for a law student or lawyer considering a career shift to journalism. You do need experience, though, to apply. They request clips.
The help-wanted on JournalismJobs.com is for a reporter to cover the courts and legal community in the Boston area. The job is full time.
The ad is blind but the contact person given is Henriette Campagne. Several months ago I met her at MA LAWYERS WEEKLY. At the time she was the editor and I was applying for a full-time reporter's job. She could still be there.
The compensation then was in the 50s. The office is on Milk Street and to even park for the relatively brief interview set me back $32. So, if you plan to pursue this, take public transportation. If you get the job, there are plenty of reasonably priced cool places in the area to have lunch.
On the way home from the interview, back to New Haven, Connecticut, I checked my email at a truck stop. A juicy contract opportunity was offered to me. So I went with that. My regret is I didn't get to dig into the ethos of the Boston legal scene.
About career transitions. I delivered a talk on that at the New York State Bar Association. It was published in VITAL SPEECHES OF THE DAY. Here you can read it Download NYSBAtalkinVITALSPEECHESOFDAY I still get calls from displaced lawyers. They say the talk saved their lives.
