The Australian Lawyers Alliance (ALA) is a national membership association of legal professionals working to promote access to justice and the rights of the individual. Our members specialise in areas ranging from personal injury, workers’ compensation, medical negligence, motor vehicle accidents, insurance and catastrophic injury to the rights of refugees and asylum seekers, counter-terrorism laws, financial services and royal commissions. We publish a weekly e-newsletter, Australian Lawyers Alliance News (ALAn) for members, a blog called Opinion and a bi-monthly magazine, Precedent. Precedent is one of the ALA’s flagship membership offerings and a key tool for attracting and retaining members.
We are seeking an enthusiastic Publications Officer to support the work of the Publications Manager. The role would suit a recent law graduate, an experienced editor or a legal professional returning to work who is interested in all aspects of legal publishing.
We value work/life balance and professional excellence. This is a great opportunity to put your skills to use in an interesting and stimulating role. If you are keen to work for an organisation that advocates for the rights of the individual and to help shape a high-quality and well-respected legal journal, as well as take responsibility for specific areas of online legal content, we encourage you to apply. Training will be offered to the right applicant. Initially part time (30.4 hours a week), with the possibility of increasing to a full-time role.
