The intern will work with our team to create seminars and learning opportunities, manage membership programs, promote educational and networking programs, and assist with events. The Arts Administration Internship is open to college graduates and masters students all year round. The internship is a volunteer position.

Art Law Internship

Our Art Law Internship provides opportunities for current law students to learn about the many different areas of law affecting the arts and how the law relates to the unique issues faced by artists and arts and cultural organizations. Our internships expose law students to a wide range of legal issues specific to the arts, particularly in the non-profit sector. Art law interns research, write, and provide supervised counseling to clients on issues in copyright, trademark, contracts, business formation, and many more.

Art law interns assist with legal intake, helping applicants discern their legal needs, and working with VLA staff, including other interns, to address those needs. Art law interns also have the opportunity to attend VLA sponsored workshops and seminars that provide training and education in legal aspects of the arts.

The Art Law Internship is open to second year (as early as the summer after your first year) and third year law students during fall, spring, and summer terms. The internship is a volunteer position.

Our application submission deadlines for our Art Law Internship are as follows:

  • Spring Semester: October 31
  • Summer Term: February 28
  • Fall Semester: June 30

Please be sure to include the term for which you are applying and the days you are available to intern with us during that term. If you have other deadlines, such as deadlines to acquire funding or receive course credit with your school, please let us know.

For all law students, please submit a (1) cover letter, (2) resume, and (3) writing sample. Upper-level students (2L, 3L, 4L), please also include your most recent law school transcript. Please address applications to:
