Summer 2019 Legal Internship
About the Role
You will have an opportunity to expand your legal research and writing skills by researching and analyzing legal and regulatory matters in a growing and innovative business model. You will also have a chance to work with commercial contracts and corporate transaction documents. These experiences will help prepare you for future roles in FinTech, entrepreneurship, startups, or law firms in corporate, regulatory, employment law, or litigation groups.
Past intern projects have included: drafting form marketing agreements for the business development group; creating term summaries of corporate transaction documents; researching and writing memos on state and federal regulatory matters affecting lenders; researching the requirements of new employment laws in the various states in which SoFi operates; and updating disclosures and policies to comply with state and federal law. Given our rapid growth and changing needs, we can’t pinpoint exactly what you’ll work on, but there are always legal and regulatory challenges in a growing business. You will be mentored by attorneys who have vast experience practicing law as in-house counsel, at federal agencies, and at large law firms in corporate, employment law, and litigation groups.
At SoFi, our ambition is to help our members achieve financial independence and reach their goals. We aim to be at the center of our members’ financial lives, and to help every member get their money right. We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a modern approach to lending and personal finance.
