The position, based in New York, resides within the Journal's Greater New York bureau but reports directly to the chief of the Journal's law bureau.

The job is fast-paced and varied. The two offices sit at the heart of the state's vast law-enforcement apparatus and in recent years, have played significant roles in a host of cases with national implications.

The Attorney General has launched investigations or enforcement actions against Google and Facebook for possible antitrust violations, drugmakers over the opioid crisis, and oil companies over climate change.

The Manhattan DA, meanwhile, has filed rape and other charges against film producer Harvey Weinstein and is investigating whether the Trump Organization violated laws in connection with payments made to former adult-film star Stormy Daniels. Throughout the years, the office successfully targeted organized criminal enterprises, big banks, and corrupt politicians.

You will be expected to break news on a regular basis, and to this end, will be expected to source deeply with people close to both offices. You should be able to write quickly and cleanly on court hearings and legal filings, and also be able to drive deeper enterprise work on crime and criminal justice.

A law degree is not required, nor is any previous legal-reporting experience. But you should know the basics of how the legal and court systems operate, and be able to quickly get up to speed on any legal topic, as required.

You should be an eager collaborator; you will frequently be called upon to work with colleagues and bureaus from across coverage areas at the Journal.

You should be very digitally-minded and smart in thinking about how to ride a news story online. At least five years of reporting experience is preferred.
