About the Content Team
In line with our twin goals of serving companies and students, the Content team is responsible for designing and deploying bespoke Virtual Experience Programs (VEPs) for our corporate partners. Our VEPs are designed to simulate the actual work an early career candidate will experience in a specific job at a specific company. These are incredibly immersive and impart invaluable skills that help skill candidates for the world of work. We work closely with our corporate partners and leverage a large roster of freelance professionals around the world to design and deliver Forage programs. The team is fast-growing and is core to Forage's mission and value to students and companies around the world.
We are looking for an intern to support our Content team as they create the content for our virtual work experience programs.
- Support with research into clients and/or their key business areas in order to determine the content we create aligns with their objectives.
- Prepare job posts so we can hire appropriate freelancers that can be trusted to create the content itself!
- Work in our back-end technology to help build the programs themselves.
- Conducting quality assurance of program content ahead of program launches
- Preparing and maintaining key project plans and timelines
- Work closely in a fast-paced and evolving environment with the rest of the content team and client-facing team to ensure a high quality work overall!
Please note that we require our interns to provide support throughout the year. We will not be accepting applications from candidates that are only seeking to work during the holiday period. If you would like to work with us throughout the year, we will absolutely be flexible to accommodate your study schedule.
- Exceptional attention to detail - particularly written skills. This is an absolute must!

A virtual Experience Program
As mentioned in the video instructions, the firm is seeking to adopt more artificial inteligence technologies into its way of working. These will allow us to comodify some of the more labor intensive, routine and manual work often undertaken by paralegals, trainees and junior associates and offer them to clients at a lower cost and with quicker turnaround times. It will also allow us to fully utilize the talent of our junior legal staff by giving them more time and opportunity to take on technically demanding legal work which is what they signed up for.
At present the firm is considering purchasing a subscription to a new machine learning ai technology that can analyse data from a number of internal and external sources, extract the key information that we instruct it to, and provide a clear summary in a client ready format. We are excited about the prospect of utilizing this ai as it offers us clear advantages in due diligence, business development and legal research work amongst others.
However, before the firm commits to adopting the AI we need to carry out a thorough risk assessment and legal review. As part of this, we need to understand the IP and copyright law implicatons for data used in an AI process. Could you design a process where we can reliably assess this when using data from a number of sources? The sources we need to consider are:
1. Clyde & Co data from internal sources;
2. External data that is publicly accessible; and
3. External data that is accessible through a license.
Your supervisor just emailed you a background note which provides an overview of IP rights that might affect data source used in AI processes (however, please do supplement the points on IP and copyright law with desktop research as necessary).
Your supervisor have also attached a (largely blank) flowchart that you can populate to set out the process. Our tech innovation team thought it was best this completed by legal staff.
