Citizen Media Law Project is Hiring a Staff Attorney

Are you a lawyer interested in dealing with emerging legal issues related to law, journalism, and new media on the Internet?  Would you like to help online journalists and new media ventures meet their legal needs?  Do you want a stimulating yet laid back work environment?

It's a great opportunity for experienced media, Internet, or IP law practitioners who want to serve the public interest, transition to academic pursuits, or simply work in an intellectually invigorating environment.  The Staff Attorney will have many opportunities to expand his/her knowledge of technology and law, including frequent interactions with other fellows at the Berkman Center and throughout Harvard University.
