[OH Jobs] LexisNexis Corporate Counsel

I remember someone during my first year of law school calling LexisNexis, “law school crack.”  How right she was.  I soon became addicted.  Legal writing professor needed a memo?  I researched it thoroughly.  Had an job interview?  I learned the voting party of my interviewer (in certain states) so I knew whether or not to joke about Scalia.

As a self-proclaimed tech/legal nerd/geek, my dream job would be to work at Lexis and have access to all of that INFORMATION!  All of those ARCHIVES!  All of that case law building our world’s history.

Unfortunately, I’m not quite suited for a Corporate Counsel position but I’m sure it fits one of you very nicely.  One of you in Miamisburg, OH.
