Silicon Valley needs to understand Washington. While Valley companies increasingly make decisions that affect millions—even billions—of people, too many technologists still fail to grasp the important role of public policy, how to participate in the policy process, and how to explain their work in language that lawmakers can grasp.

I’m excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for a new Associate Editor at Lawfare.
This is a highly demanding role. It's a research assistantship at Brookings. But it's also a dual-hatted role in which a significant amount of the position’s work involves being part of Lawfare’s editorial staff, helping with the care and feeding of the site's voracious appetite, and assisting with the smooth functioning of its editorial process. There is also a lot of great writing opportunity for the right person.

Tacos and sunshine. SXSW and a booming, tech-focused economy. Barbeque and live music all over. All that, plus a chance to work with a team that is kind, fun, and eager to innovate in the classroom and in policy-relevant writing.
If 2018 was the year that the D.C.-Silicon Valley divide became abundantly apparent, then 2019 is the year that we can and should do more to bridge that divide. To do so, we need more bridge crossers: experts in both technology and policy.
Lawfare is now accepting resumes from part-time freelance copy editors and proofreaders to contribute to our high-impact, nonpartisan website examining issues at the intersection of national security and the law, published in cooperation with the Brookings Institution.
Lawfare is growing, not just as a website but also as an organization. And we are hiring a new Director of Operations to help us grow. If you’re someone who loves Lawfare and wants to be involved—central, even—to the next few years of the site’s life but you’re not an editorial person, just a hard-charging entrepreneurial type who knows how to run an organization, we want to hear from you.

We are very excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for a new position at Lawfare and Brookings. This two-year fellowship is dedicated to covering congressional activity on national security issues in the Lawfare space. Over the years, Lawfare has developed some of the most comprehensive and informed analysis of national security legal and policy issues within the executive branch and the courts. For a long time, we’ve felt that the legislative branch was getting short shrift. This position is designed to fix that.
It’s my pleasure to announce that Lawfare is hiring an associate editor! Nobody’s leaving, but the site has seen monumental growth in the volume of readership and submissions recently, and our team wants your help handling it.
The position is highly demanding: It carries editorial responsibilities for Lawfare and research and administrative responsibilities as Benjamin Wittes’s research assistant. But it also provides unparalleled writing opportunities for the right candidate at this particular time for the site.
Lawfare is now accepting spring internship applications. Apply here.
Our redoubtable associate editor, Quinta Jurecic, is taking a leave of absence starting in two weeks—a leave that will run through the end of the calendar year. This leaves us a big hole to fill, and we need an intense, energetic, would-be editorial superstar to jump in for a few months to fill it.
Warning: This is a super-demanding entry-level position. It is also a great opportunity for the right person interested in law, policy and national security, and willing to dive in the deep end without a lot of hand-holding.
