Verizon's Legal Intern Program ("VLIP") is a diversity pipeline initiative intended to create a significant and lasting impact on the legal profession by developing prospective talent through exposure to the practice of law in a corporate legal setting.
While VLIP is open to all 1Ls, we strongly encourage women and students from ethnically diverse backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in corporate law departments to apply. All applicants regardless of age, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin or disability must be exceptional, eager and ready to thrive in a competitive corporate environment.
Under the supervision of Verizon attorneys, selected interns will have the opportunity to: support negotiations with large enterprise customers by drafting contract amendments; review and/or draft provisions for Verizon's technology and software sourcing contracts; participate in business, sales and marketing meetings; research and summarize legal developments and/or case law in practice areas such as IP, tax and privacy; and contribute to projects that relate to state and/or federal regulatory issues affecting the communications industry.
Interns will have the opportunity to produce written work product subject to Verizon confidentiality restrictions.
