Twitch is the world's biggest live streaming service, with global communities built around gaming, entertainment, music, sports, cooking, and more. It's where millions of people come together to chat, interact, and make their own entertainment.
We're about community, inside and out. You'll find coworkers who are eager to team up, collaborate, and smash (or elegantly solve) problems together. We're on a quest to empower live communities, so if this sounds good to you, see what we're up to on LinkedIn and Twitter, get interviewing tips on Instagram, and discover projects we're solving on our Blog.
About the Role
The goal of Twitch’s Next Generation Legal Internship Program is to add to the fabric of the legal profession by providing opportunities and guidance to aspiring legal professionals from underrepresented backgrounds. The three month paid program is designed to: (i) support high-caliber law students whose potential is limited only by the opportunities available to them; (ii) provide a challenging and rewarding internship experience at the intersection of law and technology; (iii) expose participants to various careers within in-house practice; and (iv) establish a network of professional contacts who may serve as resources on participants’ continuing journeys.
Twitch’s culture is fast-paced, innovative, team oriented and collegial. Our scale and speed of growth finds the Legal Team considering novel and challenging questions on a daily basis. If you would like to work in an environment where every new project is a learning opportunity, you've come to the right place. As an intern, you will receive work assignments from a variety of practice areas, to include content agreements, advertising, product, data use & privacy, compliance, and more. You'll also participate in leadership and interpersonal development curriculum and gain industry knowledge from top Twitch executives in fireside chats. Add to this a Kappastone project, cohort activities, weekly advisory, service opportunities and you've got a packed summer.
By the end of the program, participants will have a better understanding of how Legal supports critical corporate functions, insights into a wide range of legal matters affecting tech companies, and experience partnering with cross-disciplinary teams in a fast-paced work environment.
