St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN seeking 2013 Summer Legal Intern - Inhouse

Legal interns at St. Jude spend a Summer immersed in a unique culture where basic, translational, and clinical research are all housed on the same campus as a robust hospital, where biochemists, computational biologists, geneticists, and statisticians routinely interact with specialists in infectious diseases, oncology, pharmacology, radiology, surgery, and hematology (including non-malignant hematologies like sickle cell disease), among others.  Interns will work with a number of lawyers, both in-house and (with supervision) outside counsel, on substantive projects in many aspects of the law – some of which will be up to the intern’s interests – including health law, business transactions, risk management, international law, intellectual property, and even shaping law and regulations at the State and Federal levels.  We take our mentoring obligations very seriously (and enjoy it!), so every assignment comes with plenty of context and follow-through opportunities for the interns, and client interaction is plentiful.  Moreover, interns will find themselves routinely included in meetings of all types for educational purposes, not because there will necessarily be any follow-up work for the intern.
