About Us:

Twitch is the world's biggest live streaming service, with global communities built around gaming, entertainment, music, sports, cooking, and more. It's where millions of people come together to chat, interact, and make their own entertainment.

We're about community, inside and out. You'll find coworkers who are eager to team up, collaborate, and smash (or elegantly solve) problems together. We're on a quest to empower live communities, so if this sounds good to you, see what we're up to on LinkedIn and Twitter, get interviewing tips on Instagram, and discover projects we're solving on our Blog.

About the Role

The goal of Twitch’s Next Generation Legal Internship Program is to add to the fabric of the legal profession by providing opportunities and guidance to aspiring legal professionals from underrepresented backgrounds. The three month paid program is designed to: (i) support high-caliber law students whose potential is limited only by the opportunities available to them; (ii) provide a challenging and rewarding internship experience at the intersection of law and technology; (iii) expose participants to various careers within in-house practice; and (iv) establish a network of professional contacts who may serve as resources on participants’ continuing journeys.

 

Twitch’s culture is fast-paced, innovative, team oriented and collegial. Our scale and speed of growth finds the Legal Team considering novel and challenging questions on a daily basis. If you would like to work in an environment where every new project is a learning opportunity, you've come to the right place. As an intern, you will receive work assignments from a variety of practice areas, to include content agreements, advertising, product, data use & privacy, compliance, and more. You'll also participate in leadership and interpersonal development curriculum and gain industry knowledge from top Twitch executives in fireside chats. Add to this a Kappastone project, cohort activities, weekly advisory, service opportunities and you've got a packed summer. 

 

By the end of the program, participants will have a better understanding of how Legal supports critical corporate functions, insights into a wide range of legal matters affecting tech companies, and experience partnering with cross-disciplinary teams in a fast-paced work environment. 

You Will:

  • Research substantive legal issues and propose solutions that impact our streamer communities, internal clients, and the company. 
  • Draft and negotiate various commercial agreements
  • Review and analyze current company policies to ensure we remain compliant in a shifting regulatory environment 
  • Update agreement templates for use throughout the organization
  • Assist with special projects and initiatives, as needed.

You Have:

  • An interest in the in-house legal environment with a focus on the tech sector
  • Current law school student or recent graduate (2021) in good standing
  • Self-identify as part of a community whose narrative is underrepresented in the legal profession
  • Excellent legal writing, legal research, and problem-solving skills 
  • Able to work independently with only occasional direction
  • Exceptional interpersonal and communications skills

To Apply: 

  • Resume
  • Transcript
  • Writing sample (5 pages or less, excerpts okay)
  • Candidates invited to the onsite interviews will be asked to submit a personal statement discussing how this opportunity will further their legal aspirations (500 words or less)

US Voluntary Demographic Questions

At Twitch, we serve a diverse, global community and it's important that we have teams with a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. 

We believe everyone has a role to play in creating an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive and grow.

In order to measure our effectiveness in recruiting a wide range of talent to Twitch, we invite all applicants to answer the following self-identification questions, in addition to the standard compliance forms provided, around their gender identity and sexual orientation.

Additional Self-identification categories:

  • Gender Identity: A person's internal perception of their gender and how they label themselves (may or may not correspond to gender assigned at birth).
  • Sexual Orientation: A person's sexual identity in relation to the gender to which they are attracted.

Twitch provides equal employment opportunities to all applicants based solely on their qualifications.  Your voluntary self-disclosures will be anonymized in reporting, and will not be used in any aspect of employment related decisions, nor shared with hiring managers. Declining to self-identify will not impact your application process.

I identify my gender identity as








I consider myself a member of the LGBTQ+ community




Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in Twitch’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
