Legal Insurrection is hiring

Legal Insurrection is hiring


It’s with a mix of sadness for us (because she’s leaving) and happiness for her (because she found a great law job) that I report Amy Miller is leaving Legal Insurrection at the end of the month. I’ll have more to say about that when we throw her going away party, which may result in the cops being called by the neighbors.

For a while we’ve been quietly looking to add to our team, but with Amy leaving, I’ve decided for the first time ever (I think, maybe the LI historians remember differently) to let people know on the website.

We are looking to add one or more full and/or part time editors/authors/researchers, both on domestic political and cultural issues, and Israel and BDS.

If that sounds open-ended, it’s deliberately so. I’ve always believed in hiring the person, not filling a spot. I’m particularly interested in people with strong research and writing skills, as that helps fill our niche of finding issues before others, and pursuing those issues with depth and determination. That is how we started, and though we’ve strayed from time to time, it’s where we should be.

As to attitude, someone described what we do as being “disrupters.” I think that’s right.

But we pride ourselves on being careful. LI has recently been described by some people you might have heard of as a “a great, credible blog” and “a wonderful website.” I’d like to keep it that way.

As to ideology, please see the Featured Image.

You can contact me by email here. Tell me how you could help advance the legal insurrection.

Group hug! She’ll be missed. Good luck, Amy.

Amy, we will miss you and your great work here at LI. You leave big shoes to fill. Thank you.

Amy: I always enjoyed reading your articles and your ability to roll with the punches when they came. Best of luck in your new job and your future. You will be missed

So is this a paying job?

I nominate Rags

anyone second the nomination?

    Nah, all that new found power would just go to his head.

    BTW, where’s he been lately? On vacation, or did the Trumpsters finally take him out? 😉

      I think he went into the hospital to have his Trumpster adjusted. It’s been way off to one side lately.

      If that doesn’t work, they are going to rehab him with six months in domestic relations show cause court. That will make almost anybody humble.

    Anyone who uses cutsie-pie spellings like T-Rump is not the sort of writer I want to see. Were he to get past that nonsense, I think he’d be a fine writer indeed.

      Go back and read Rags postings on the Zimmermann trial. Rags has a good understanding of the law.

      I like this site for its core issue, the law.

      Rags did an excellent job of illuminating the law concerning the Zimmermann case.

      I don’t have to agree 100% with the author’s opinion so long as they fully present the facts and can make them understandable in terms of the law.

      Rags would do a great job at that for LI. He might need a pseudonym though.

      And being a Texan now, I like his snarky side too.

    I would definitely second that nomination.

Well, honesty and credibility eliminates all the Trump supporters, so that’s a plus.

I heard that Sammy applied, but The Professor nixed it because he was afraid the Internet would run out of ink.

“credible”…. that leaves me and my tin helmet sitting on the bench!

I guess I’m not going to get an answer on what the job pays, but it seems to me that being a writer among this company would take roughly 100% of ones waking hours. I certainly don’t have the qualifications for the job, but if I did, I would want to know what I would be paid for my work. Capitalism, you know?

    Just a guess, but I would bet the salary range is somewhere between zero and all the abuse you can stand from folks who don’t like your subjects, politics, writing style, hair style, choice of pets, etc.

Farewell, Amy. All the best in your new job. Anonamom and I are going to miss you.

I have been a critic of yours, Amy, but hopefully you took it as constructive for that was the intent.

I wish you well in life. Go forth and prosper. 🙂

Wishing Amy well! And all the best at the new job.

It would be a absolute blast to write at LI, Professor, not that you would have me. That said, I *really* enjoying microblogging on twitter and that leaves little time to do blog posts again.

I would definitely second that nomination.

I nominate Henry Hawkins 🙂
