The Role

BenevolentAI’s Compliance, Legal and IP (CLIP) team is looking for an enthusiastic legal intern to get involved in a wide variety of exciting team projects. This will be a full-time role over the three-month summer period.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Second or third-year law undergraduate at a reputable university in a common law jurisdiction (and already based in London for the summer with the right to work in the UK full-time over the period of the internship, if currently studying elsewhere).
  • A “can do” attitude and a willingness to learn and exist outside of your comfort zone.
  • Interest, knowledge, and experience of the technology and/or life sciences and biotechnology sectors and surrounding law and regulation is important but not as essential as an enthusiasm to jump in and learn!
