About

Speaking at the Yale Hindi Debate, 2014.I’m a freelance reporter and editor. My beat is broad, but I generally write about lawsuits and lawyers, from Big Law to the plaintiffs’ bar. If you have a tip, get in touch.

Here is my Twitter and here is my LinkedIn. My email addresses are j dot newsham at gmail dot com and jacknewsham at protonmail dot com.

I previously worked at the American Lawyer and the New York Law Journal, covering the business of law. Before that, I was at Law360, where I wrote about civil and criminal disputes in New York courts and practice areas like securities, asset management, banking and white-collar crime.

I cut my teeth as a business and metro-desk reporter for newspapers. I have contributed to the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Poynter, the Sacramento Bee and the American Prospect.

My interests include media, law, international news and investigations. I support good reporting: reporting that not only informs, but makes an impact, and is fair to all those involved. I believe reporters should be able to explain their decisions — whether that’s to grant a source anonymity or to dig into a subject in the first place.

I speak French, and in my spare time, I study Spanish.

I received my bachelor’s in economics from Yale.
