The Software Freedom Law Center is accepting applications for legal internships for the summer of 2010.
Legal interns assist SFLC counsel in all areas of our practice, including copyright and trademark licensing, patent review, and nonprofit corporate formation and compliance. Typical work includes legal research and writing, drafting educational materials, and litigation preparation.
Summer internships are full-time, and generally last 10 weeks or longer, although splits may be possible in some cases. All interns will work from our New York office. Internships are unpaid; students may seek seek funding from their school’s public interest program or other sponsorship arrangement.
Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in software freedom and be conversant in legal and technical concepts related to free and open source software. No specific prior course of study or technical proficiency is required. Law students of all levels will be considered.
To apply, please send a resume and cover letter in a free and open format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Technology internships are also available.
