ZwillGen, a leading boutique law firm specializing in the intersection of law and technology, is seeking candidates for its 2019 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, and it’s a lot of fun, just ask former Fellows:

“ZwillGen was a fantastic place to dive into some of the most interesting tech and privacy legal issues. I learned a ton working with some of the best and most fun lawyers I know.” ~Brett Weinstein, former ZwillGen fellow

“Complex and intriguing work and the real cherry on top is the incredible colleagues!” ~Anna Myers, former ZwillGen fellow

The ZwillGen Fellow position is for attorneys who have graduated from law school (or will have by June 2019), taken the bar exam (or will have by July 2019), and are new entrants into the workforce as full-time attorneys. The Fellow position is slated to last for 12 months with a salary of $90,000-$100,000, commensurate with experience.

Applicants must have a zeal for all things technology and have taken some relevant 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 cover letter, resume, law school transcript, writing sample, and professional references.

The deadline to submit applications is Friday, October 5, 2018. Applications submitted after the deadline may still be considered at our discretion.
