ZwillGen, a leading boutique law firm specializing in the intersection of law and technology, is seeking candidates for its 2015 Fellowship Program. The program presents a unique opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most experienced privacy and data security lawyers representing the biggest names in technology, including Yahoo!, Airbnb, FanDuel, Cablevision, Pandora, Electronic Arts, Zynga and others.

The ZwillGen Fellow position is for attorneys who have graduated from law school (or will have by June 2015), taken the bar exam (or will have by July 2015), and are entering the work force for the first time as a full-time attorney. The Fellow position is slated to last for 12 months with a salary range of $70,000 – $80,000.

Applicants must have a zeal for all things technology and have taken classes in law school on technology related subjects such as data privacy, cybersecurity, cyber-surveillance, copyright, or mobile applications. Experience working with a technology company or organization is a plus.

ZwillGen Fellows work closely with ZwillGen attorneys on a variety of cutting edge and legally challenging Internet privacy, security and surveillance issues. Because ZwillGen Fellows wear a variety of hats, we are looking for someone that is not only able to provide high quality legal analysis in a concise and cogent manner, but also someone who is motivated and enthusiastic and embraces a fast-paced and lively environment. A good sense of humor and a desire to work hard and have fun are a must. Fellows are expected to engage in client development, speaking and writing engagements, blogging, teaching, marketing, assisting with development of firm forms and precedent materials, and generally helping out around the firm. They are also required to complete a substantial writing assignment (either a law review article or significant journal article) during the Fellowship.

Qualified and interested candidates should submit to fellowship@zwillgen.com whatever materials they deem interesting and material to our consideration of their candidacy, which should include, at a minimum, a description of their academic and professional experience.
The deadline to submit applications is October 3, 2014.
