We are a next generation legal services company that is at the vanguard of the legal profession. Rather than focus on outdated modes of reaching and obtaining clients, we are moving forward and integrating legal services with life services. We are looking for legal interns who are skilled at research, writing and thinking less like a lawyer and more like a human being. [Did we mention that a sense of humor is important?].

Our ideal interns will be able to:

Create documents that are user friendly and easy to understand
Create legal documents that are in plain English
Craft accompanying questions for clients that are clear and simple to answer
Create life issue documents that are relevant to legal fields – i.e. explanatory documents for what a Health Care Proxy is, and how it can be incorporated into an estate plan
Craft, review, and edit documents so that they are ready to go with a minimum of after-production editing
Work 15-20 hours per week on site

This job will give you hands on experience in creating legal documents with the added benefit of being able to explain what you know to the average person. You can learn about different areas of law in a hands-on manner with experienced attorneys helping you as you go. Plus, there are sometimes free donuts. It’s WIN/WIN!

Ideal Candidate:
2nd or 3rd year
Interested in creating documents from the ground up
Excellent writing skills – undergrad in English / Literature / Communications is preferred
Good sense of humor
Think clearly and communicate effectively in writing
Ability to both explain and follow directions

Interested Candidates should submit:
