The University of Oregon’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) invites undergraduate students to apply for a remote, short-term internship position with our office. The OGC is a fast-paced, high-volume work place that handles all the University of Oregon’s legal affairs from Eugene, Oregon. The OGC manages all the University’s litigation, which ranges from state and federal court lawsuits, to state and federal agency complaints, to binding arbitrations. The OGC provides advice, counseling, and training in various areas of law and policy including civil rights, labor and employment, privacy rights, First Amendment, intellectual property, athletics, business transactions, construction and design real estate, and numerous other complex regulatory matters. See https://generalcounsel.uoregon.edu/what-we-do. The goal of the placement is to help students gain substantive knowledge of the practice of the Office of General Counsel. Under the close direction of the Associate General Counsel, the student will shadow attorneys, conduct short-term research projects (such as a survey of best practices of university free speech guidelines), pursue one long term project (such as developing a know your rights document about changes in copyright law, or cannabis law), and gain exposure to one or more of the legal issues handled by the OGC. The OGC will also seek to expose the student to several of the topics listed above that suit the student’s availability and interest, and if scheduling permits, the student will have the opportunity to attend witness interviews, settlement conferences, and agency and court hearings. Internships with the OGC are usually limited to law students, so this is a short (generally three weeks), intensive, and rare opportunity for undergraduate students interested in the law to gain work experience with in-house counsel. Applicants should specify whether they are applying to work during winter term, the beginning of the summer (usually May or June) or the end of the summer (usually August).
