Is there anything I can do to improve my application for Stanford? It is right in the heart of Silicon Valley, a place I have spent a lot of time helping build technology products.
OK you "think?" We are all here to tell you the job as you described it doesn't exist. Your job will be, without a doubt, either filing patents for software, mobile phones, etc. or suing people who infringe software patents. Is that what you want to do? If yes, go to law school. If you want to shape how law applies to technology, you are going to be really kicking yourself once you realize you were wrong.
ETA: Your internships won't help you for summer jobs in law school, and in any event, the only job that matters is the job after your 2L summer. For that, having some internship experience at Google/FB will just help you get more screeners/callback interviews as long as your grades meet a certain cutoff. Your cutoff will be slightly lower because you have a BS in computer science, not because you were an intern at Google. Then, it's up to you not to blow callbacks to get a summer job. You'll probably be fine because you've had interview experience.
Seriously, bro, you are the stereotypical undergrad who wants to go to law school due to a colossal misconception of what it means to be a lawyer and the state of the legal market, who also then refuses to listen when people who actually know try to give you good advice, and gets offended. Have seen it happen so many times. You'll eventually wish you listened, everybody wakes up eventually.
