    Description

    Legal interns support the eight lawyers in The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Office of General Counsel and work on various projects under the guidance of the legal team. This work includes legal research, drafting and reviewing contracts, preparing legal memoranda, and drafting position statements in human resources matters. This internship is a great opportunity for students who are interested developing issues in health law such as health information exchanges, accountable care organizations, and scientific research. Students will work with the other lawyers and professional staff in the Office of General Counsel on health law related projects, and have exposure to what working in a hospital corporate legal department is like.

    We require eight hours per week during business hours, which may be scheduled over two days, with a preference for students who will work a structured schedule each week. These hours are eligible for the Penn Law Pro Bono Requirement.
