Entertainment, Sports & Intellectual Property Internship Program
Employer Sector and Geography
The proposed internship opportunity must be with (a) the law department of an entertainment or sports industry company, talent guild or trade association or (b) IP law department of a company or trade association. Placements may be in the United States or abroad. Students may not work in any setting where they have been employed or paid for their legal work in the past two years. Some very limited exceptions apply. Students are limited to one semester at any placement unless the student is in a different legal department or will be receiving a novel learning experience.
The student may not receive any monetary compensation for the work including, but not limited to, work study, grants, stipends or awards. Students may not forgo compensation for credit.
In addition to the work component of the program, students must be supervised by an on-site licensed attorney and the program’s internship director or a faculty supervisor who closely monitors and regularly corresponds with students throughout the semester. Faculty supervisors will review samples of students’ written work, assess their internship progress, and determine course grades.
