Twitch - Legal Internship
About the Role
The goal of Twitch’s Next Generation Legal Internship Program is to add to the fabric of the legal profession by providing opportunities and guidance to aspiring legal professionals from underrepresented backgrounds. The three month program is designed to: (i) support high-caliber law students whose potential is limited only by the opportunities available to them; (ii) provide a challenging and rewarding internship experience at the intersection of law and technology; (iii) expose participants to various careers within in-house practice; and (iv) establish a network of professional contacts who may serve as resources on participants’ continuing journeys.
Twitch’s culture is fast-paced, innovative, team oriented and collegial. Our scale and speed of growth finds the Legal Team considering novel and challenging questions on a daily basis. If you would like to work in an environment where every new project is a learning opportunity, you've come to the right place. As an intern, you will receive work assignments from a variety of practice areas, to include content agreements, advertising, product, data use & privacy, compliance, and more. In addition, you'll own a capstone project from start to finish.
By the end of the program, participants will have a better understanding of how Legal supports critical corporate functions, insights into a wide range of legal matters affecting tech companies, and experience partnering with cross-disciplinary teams in a fast-paced work environment.
