Internships

SEO Law recruits, interviews and places students who have already been accepted into law school and will be matriculating into law school in the Fall in 10-week, paid summer internships with our partner firms. Our partner firms generously invest in SEO Law Fellows by offering compensation for both their work at the firm and for participation in SEO Law’s exclusive training programs, including the Law Institute.

SEO Law Fellows will observe and experience first-hand the day-to-day duties and responsibilities of attorneys at some of the nation’s most prestigious firms. Broadly speaking, most corporate lawyers may be categorized as either transactional attorneys or litigators. SEO Law Fellows are given exposure to both fields during their internships.

  • Transactional attorneys advise companies involved in large financial transactions including initial public offerings of stock, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate reorganizations and cross-border financing.
  • Litigators represent plaintiffs and defendants in trials, arbitrations and settlement negotiations and may work in various areas of law, including securities, tax, bankruptcy, antitrust, real estate and white-collar crime.
  • SEO Law places Fellows at prestigious firms in Atlanta, Chicago, Columbus (OH), Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Orange County/Newport Beach (CA), New York, San Francisco/Palo Alto/Menlo Park, Washington, D.C. and Wilmington (DE).
  • Corporate attorneys must demonstrate close attention to detail, display superlative communication skills, and above all, have the analytical ability to understand the application of the law to a client’s business objectives. Our Fellows have a chance to practice these skills throughout the summer.

SEO Law also offers alums paid 1L summer internships with federal judges. The SEO Law Judicial Internship is an opportunity to work with a federal judge during the summer after the first year of law school.
