Fall 2014 - Wikimedia Foundation, Legal Intern


If you’re a current law student or recent law school graduate passionate about free knowledge and open source issues, applying to our legal internship program can provide an immersive in-house experience with specific education and training in the areas of Internet law and free knowledge organizations. Interns selected would work full-time at the Foundation's downtown San Francisco office (we will also consider applications for part-time work on a case-by-case basis for the Fall and Spring semesters).

What to expect:

The Foundation faces a myriad of legal issues ranging from complex copyright questions to international freedom of speech issues to mobile development to internal corporate compliance. Because of the wide array of legal issues, the interns will be assigned challenging projects based on their particular interests and strengths. These projects range from researching various legal questions to drafting licensing agreements to developing internal and external policies. Each intern will receive individualized projects that they will be expected to spearhead under the supervision and guidance of an attorney from the Legal & Community Advocacy Department. Interns will work closely with their supervising attorney -- attending and participating in internal and external meetings, collaborating on projects, receiving feedback and support, and generally learning about the practical dimensions of practicing law in-house at a web-based company.
