We are seeking a 2nd yearlaw student to work as a fall 2022 Legal Intern in our Los Angeles office. This is a paid part-time internship working with our Entertainment Team in our Corporate Practice Group. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated interest (e.g., by taking copyright, trademark, torts II, contracts and other relevant substantive law courses) and/or real world experience in entertainment work. Our interns provide legal and industry research, template drafting and review, and other substantive support for our attorneys on projects that are both challenging and exciting. Interns will be paired with a partner mentor and receive real-time feedback. We also offer various training programs – both practice and office specific – throughout the duration of the program.
Qualified candidates will have strong academic credentials (3.0 GPA or higher), superb judgment and communication skills, excellent contract drafting skills, and a commitment to providing strong client services. While there is no guarantee of post-graduation employment, this is an excellent opportunity to get to know our entertainment team and Los Angeles office, while gaining substantive experience at an international law firm.
