I have an internship with ESPN listed on my resume. The job was unrelated to law - I updated statistics and scores and edited news articles for an unpopular sport. If asked about my experiences there, which would be more important: A) casually discussing what it was like, and maybe using that to segue into a brief mention of a related hobby (writing a blog about a local team which played this sport) or B) trying to use this "experience" to demonstrate having some useful skill, like attention to detail.
The latter would take no small amount of ingenuity. I mostly just chilled in a newsroom watching 80s movies.
That's gonna be interviewer specific. Some interviewers are going to ask you about that immediately and just want to chill and talk about sports for 20 minutes, if that is the case indulge them. Others will be more intense and not care as much, in which case you'll need to spin that to more tangible skills. Either way, that is something which will stand out enough that I'd imagine you'll get asked about it in 90%+ of your interviews. If you know how to use it correctly this will probably help you greatly.
