Public-interest Fellowships
Legal interns assist 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 assisting with registrations and other filing. Internships are part-time and generally last the length of one or more semesters. Should have a demonstrated interest in software freedom and be conversant in legal and technical concepts related to free and open source software. Familiarity with at least one programming language and with general software development practices is preferred, as is course work or practical experience with copyrights, patents, trademarks, or nonprofit law. Law students of all levels will be considered. Law school graduates seeking placement for funded public-interest fellowships are encouraged to apply.
