Because of that, one of my dream jobs has always been to work for EA. Unfortunately he (along with basically all the other og members) retired a long time ago and has very little connections still at the company. How does one go about working in-house for a company like EA? Do they hire 1Ls or 2Ls for summer work to help/learn from those in-house? Thanks for any insight.
Connections are normally your best bet. I don't recall specifically whether they have an intern program in their attorney group; I'll give them a call and see. Most game companies will bring folks on for a summer, but there may be strings attached. I would suggest reading up on their products, researching the attorneys through LinkedIn to get an idea of what type of work is being performed internally, and then crafting a letter based off of the info you've collected.
Thanks for the insight. PM me if you find anything out. I hope to take a number of tech-related law classes (I currently work in IT) after my 1L and am leaning right now, which means absolutely nothing, toward tech law of some sort.
