LMU Loyola Law School designed the Summer Technology Internship Program (TIP) for in-house legal departments, law firms, and other employers who handle technology-related matters. Our program offers employers an opportunity to recruit students for the summer. Interns would then partake in mandatory practical skills training taught by Loyola Law School professors and practicing attorneys in the technology area.
How the Program Works
- Candidates: Career Development will collect applications and screen resumes for rising 2L and 3L students with a demonstrated interest or related experience/education in technology. Employers can note additional hiring preferences that we should consider when reviewing applications. Employers can then opt to pre-screen candidates and/or invite students in for interviews before making their final decision.
- Cost: Employers can determine the compensation rate for their rising 2L or 3L intern.
- Training: Selected interns will attend a mandatory legal skills boot camp that will help them better understand concepts. They will gain knowledge of the unique issues and incidents that technology employers face. Loyola will continue to offer training programs to students throughout their time in law school.
- Commitment: The internship is for a summer (employers can set the exact start and end dates with their interns).
