We are seeking a Legal Intern for our team to support research across a range of topics in the rapidly developing and evolving area of autonomous driving. This position is well-suited for individuals in their second year of law school (or beyond) who want first-hand exposure to legal issues impacting the future of mobility. Our interns (we generally have one at any time) research cutting-edge issues and prepare written summaries and recommendations that can be shared and presented across our organization. Interns are supervised and work directly with attorneys and government relations specialists.
Address questions from commercial and engineering team members, and provide client-friendly briefings
Research laws and regulations at all levels of government to comprehensively address regulatory landscape of topics of interest.
Collect compelling ideas from the brightest thinkers in relevant fields, and brainstorm on pragmatic solutions
What you'll bring:
Strong research and written and oral presentation skills are needed (and we will help mentor). Relevant prior experience with technology, AI, mobility, automotive issues, safety and/or cybersecurity and privacy is helpful but not required.
Currently enrolled in Law School, with at least one year completed.
Experience with emerging technology laws and regulations
Interest in transportation, data, cybersecurity, risk assessment, and intellectual property.
Self-guided and curious
Ability to break down complex legal concepts to colleagues from a variety of backgrounds
The art of brevity - able to provide a valuable level of detail without treading into verbosity
Comfortable with uncertainty -- many of the questions posed will not have a single clear answer; we need to hear about options and receive an educated recommendation (in some instances informed by experience in comparable industries).
