Part Time Unpaid Internship
SAG-AFTRA is the largest performers union in the world, representing over 160,000 members who work in the film, television, commercial, new media, broadcast, and sound recording industries. The SAG-AFTRA Legal Department and Government Affairs and Public Policy Department offer an internship program for interested law students. Interns will gain a meaningful understanding of how an entertainment labor union enforces collective bargaining agreements and participates in the political process.
(This section provides a general summary of the most significant job duties performed. It does not explain in detail every single duty performed.)
Interns are involved in all aspects of the work done by the Legal Department, including, but not limited to: Arbitration and litigation of contractual disputes with studios, producers, and distributors in the theatrical and television industries and with advertising agencies in the commercial industry; interpretation and enforcement of collective bargaining agreements; research and drafting related to labor law, entertainment law, intellectual property law, contract law and employment law; special projects as by staff attorneys.
SAG-AFTRA prefers candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to labor and employment law, litigation, and entertainment law. A dedication to protecting workers and advancing unions is a plus.
