SCOTUSblog is looking for a new editor, to start work in July 2020. The editor’s responsibilities will include editing every post that is published on the blog, writing a daily round-up of news and commentary related to the Supreme Court, organizing and supervising special projects, and working with the blog manager to identify authors for case coverage and symposia, as well as topics for symposia and other features.

The ideal candidate will have strong writing and editing skills, a close attention to detail and a background in legal journalism and/or the Supreme Court. The position is full-time. The workload generally follows the Supreme Court’s schedule – that is, very busy on argument and opinion days, but with fewer time-sensitive posts and more flexibility at other times of the year. The job is based at the blog’s office in Bethesda, Maryland, but working remotely may sometimes be an option depending on the court’s schedule.

Please submit a cover letter and current resume to Edith Roberts by Friday, April 17, via either e-mail ( or snail mail:

7475 Wisconsin Avenue
Suite 850
Bethesda, MD 20814
