The OGC offers challenging and diverse work assignments for legal interns as it provides legal assistance to all divisions of NPR.  The OGC handles a wide variety of legal issues, including:  FCC regulatory and other communications; First Amendment; Internet; various aspects of intellectual property, including  music rights, content licensing, copyright, trademark, and patents; nonprofit tax; technology, such as software licensing; employment and labor, including Title VII, labor relations, and other aspects of the employer-employee relationship; and corporate law, as well as contracts in all areas. 

 

Law interns are expected to contribute in all practice areas.  Interns not only conduct legal research and prepare legal memoranda, contracts and other legal documents, but they also participate in client meetings, legislative and regulatory meetings, and other “outside-the-library” projects such as observing legal proceedings and attending legal training offered through the District of Columbia Bar Association or other local organizations.

  * Preference is for students who will have completed two (2) years of law school by the time of their internships
  * Applications from law students who have completed their first year, at a minimum, will also be considered if they have relevant background experience and strong legal research and writing skills.

  * a cover letter;
  * a résumé;
  * a legal writing sample;
  * names and contact information for three references (reference letters are not required), at least two of whom should be familiar with the applicant’s legal research and writing skills;
  * an unofficial law school transcript
