Nixon Peabody LLP

At Nixon Peabody, our priority is to attract, retain, and promote talented individuals from a wide range of racial, ethnic, social, economic, religious, and personal backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations. Therefore, we encourage talented individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply.

We are seeking a first or second year law student to work as a summer Legal Intern in any of our U.S. offices.  This is a paid part-time internship working with our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Services Group.  The successful candidate will have a demonstrated interest and/or experience in building DEI strategies.  Primary responsibilities for this role will be conducting in depth research on various DEI topics and drafting articles and alerts for publication externally, as well as internal memos analyzing various DEI issues.

NP’s DEI Strategic Services team provides organizations with the legal, strategic, and practical advice to build more inclusive organizations and create positive impact.  Although our firm has been doing this type of work for a long time, this newly formed group came about organically over the past 18 months as a direct response to needs we see with clients and in the marketplace more generally.

Qualified candidates will have strong academic credentials, superb judgment and communication skills, excellent legal writing skills, and a commitment to providing excellent client services.  While there is no guarantee of post-graduation employment, this is an excellent opportunity to gain substantive experience at an international law firm.

Interested applicants must submit a cover letter detailing why they are interested in this specific opportunity with Nixon Peabody.  Veterans, individuals with disabilities, first generation law students, LGBTQ+, and racial/ethnically diverse individuals are encouraged to apply.  Please create an application and submit your resume along with your cover letter and law school transcripts.
