IT-Lex Marketing and Business Development InternBookmark This
111 North Orange Avenue
DescriptionIT-Lex (www.it-lex.org) is a growing and dynamic 501(c)(3) not-for-profit dedicated to educational, literary, and scientific advancement in the field of technology law. We write two-a-day blog posts, sponsor and promote an annual cash-prize writing contest for law students, write and produce short videos, and host an annual conference.
This Internship offers a valuable and unique opportunity to participate in a growing national organization on the cutting edge of technology and law, and to potentially transition into a full-time paid position following graduation in the event the Intern excels at the position.
We see the Internship not only as a training and career development opportunity for the Intern to develop their skills, but also as a lengthy job interview where the Intern and IT-Lex can determine if they are a good long-term fit for each other.
Interns are expected to spearhead new projects related to long-term sustainability, including exploring potential grant funding, setting up an endowment drive, and developing our long-term fundraising plan. Additionally, assisting with the ongoing search for and correspondence with sponsors to support our educational and charitable mission.
