WHY BOX NEEDS YOU
As a part-time Legal Intern, you'll be embedded as a member of the Box Legal Team. We’re a diverse team invigorated by possibility thinking and delving deep into the intersection of law technology, information security, and regulations. We’re also a big enough team to have a breadth of roles, yet small enough where you could exercise a material impact by revisiting existing practices and influencing how we re-imagine how things get done.
Fundamentally, you care about why and how things get done, and not that they simply get done. Where impact is about listening with curiosity, adopting an agile mindset of first identifying success, and tinkering on different paths forward for immediate as well as long-term solutions. If you're an adaptable individual who enjoys variety, collaborative conversations proposing concrete business solutions, synthesizing information from various teams, and building out infrastructure, then you will thrive on the legal team here!

Work on a variety of projects within our Corporate and Commercial law departments. Projects will be assigned based upon needs from the legal team and YOUR skills and interests!
- Potential projects include researching IP issues, analyzing securities filings, and designing a legal research knowledge base.
