The intern will work under the guidance of the attorneys and support staff of the ASI Office of General Counsel (OGC) on a variety of special projects primarily related to ASI’s legal contracts with the third-party entities that provide benefits to AARP members. This position does not require the intern to have pursued a specific area of study in law school. The OGC has a broad range of responsibilities and will tailor the specific tasks assigned based on the needs of the office and the interests of the intern.
Generally, although detailed direction and oversight will be provided, the intern will work independently on some projects. In other instances, the intern will work more closely with the OGC staff on specific contractual relationships. The ability of the student to work well within a group setting would be helpful.
Also, the incumbent in this position may be required, based on the business needs, to perform other duties and special assignments not specifically stated.
In addition, the most important skills for the position would be attention to detail and good written communication skills, research and basic computer skills (e.g., Microsoft Word and Excel).
