The Litigation Group of the NBCUniversal Law Department seeks a recent law school graduate for a full-time one-year clerkship in New York beginning in August. The group represents and advises NBCUniversal’s broadcast, cable and digital businesses. We have a wide-ranging case load that includes First Amendment and other media issues, intellectual property, cybersecurity, employment and general commercial matters. We handle much of our litigation in-house and operate much like a small, busy law firm that happens to work on some of the most interesting legal issues in media. Our clerk can expect brief-writing, legal research, fact-gathering, and helping to prepare for court hearings, arbitrations and depositions. As the year goes on, our clerk may take broader responsibility in smaller matters, under the supervision of the experienced litigators in the group. We seek a candidate with strong writing skills, an excellent academic record, significant legal research experience, and demonstrated interest in litigation and the media industry. Journal or moot court experience is a plus. The position is located at Rockefeller Center in New York City.
Compensation is $27/hour for 40 hours per week.  Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States for the entire term of the clerkship.
