Law & Tech Opportunities

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.

Application Details

  • Please submit a cover letter, resume, transcript, and a list of references. If you're a Wikimedian, please remember to mention your username!
  • Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply as early into the submission period as possible.
  • When the opportunity exists, the Legal & Community Advocacy Department will work with an intern's university to facilitate earning academic credits and/or receiving funding for the intern's time at the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • The Wikimedia Foundation values and promotes diversity. We invite applications from candidates regardless of race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, age, or disability.
