Job Summary

Established in 2006, Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law is a leader in U.S. legal education, with undergraduate, JD, MLS and LLM programs that prepare graduates to be great advocates and advance their careers.

This year, Kline Law placed in the top 20 nationally for graduate employment and #37 on Above the Law’s “Top 50 Law Schools,” and we’ve risen nearly 50 spots in U.S. News “Best Law Schools” rankings in the last five years.

The Content Manager, a new role within Kline Law’s marketing and communications team reporting to the Director of Communications and Digital Strategy, will provide general support for digital content operations, helping publish accurate and accessible information across Kline Law web properties. The Content Manager also will oversee production of some of our email marketing and internal communications, publishing newsletters and updating content on our SharePoint intranet site.

The position requires content editing and content management experience, as well as good interpersonal skills. The ideal candidate will have an interest in developing expertise in content strategy and content design. The position is ideally located at our University City Campus in Philadelphia, PA, but we will consider a fully remote position for the right candidate.

This is an exciting time to join our organization and team, as we plan national campaigns, program launches, a magazine, website migrations and more.
