Description

This is an unpaid internship with no entitlement to a future position with the law firm. The internship is located in Santa Monica, CA, and is part-time and temporary with the requirement that you come into the office a couple times a week. Some work could be done remotely.

Boutique law firm is looking for an Intern. Law firm primarily works in patent and trademark prosecution with some litigation, so it would be ideal to have someone who is either pre-law or a law student who has an interest in patent and trademark law. You will be reading a lot of news articles, cases, and patent and trademark applications, so the love of reading is essential. You will then write blog articles at least 1-2 times a week, so the love of writing is also essential. Finally, you will be doing some social media stuff and some other tasks as needed. Because of all the reading, coupled with synthesizing what you’re reading and feedback from the law firm, you will gain experience in patent and trademark law. Depending on your work, you could also get a professional reference from the law firm to be used for another job somewhere else or for getting into law school. This is why it’s ideal to have someone who is interested in the law, with patent and trademark law in particular.

We will review resumes as they are submitted. If we believe you are a good fit, we will reply back to you and ask for a writing sample. After that, we will give you a call for a brief interview. Then, we will ask you to come into the office for a more personal, face-to-face interview. We are looking to select someone soon as there is a lot of work to get done, so please be ready to begin relatively soon after applying.

Due to how many applications we receive, we will not be able to reply to all.
