Job Description

Monthly Pay Range: $8000-9,500 USD


Mozilla Corporation is the non-profit-backed technology company behind pioneering brands like Firefox, the privacy-minded web browser, and Pocket, the content discovery platform. More than 270 million people around the world use its products each month.

Mozilla’s staff are driven by our vision to be the trusted guide through a joyful internet. We design, build and distribute software that enables people to enjoy the internet on their terms.

Help make the internet a better place!

Work with our legal and policy teams to help Mozilla make practical decisions about legal and privacy risk. We are a small, diverse team of people working on sophisticated and varied legal issues across the entire company. You’ll get to do a little bit of everything: from working with our internal engineering and product teams, to drafting contracts, researching anti-competition issues, and helping guide Mozilla’s privacy and intellectual property practices. You will also have the opportunity to work with Mozilla’s public policy team to help craft our advocacy concerning emerging policy issues, regulatory developments, and global trends affecting Mozilla’s products and services.

Mozilla isn’t just a great place to work. It’s an experience you’ll carry with you throughout your career. As part of our internship program, you’ll have the opportunity to be mentored one-on-one by somebody brilliant, to impact the projects you’ll collaborate on, and to never be bored. Ever. From the passionate people you’ll learn from, to the chances you’ll have to make the Web a better place, your time with Mozilla will be unlike any other.

Below is a small snapshot of the work we do to give you an idea about some of the big things you could do at Mozilla.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Currently enrolled in a law degree (J.D. or L.L.M.) program at an ABA-accredited law school, with graduation date of December 2024 and onward
  • Please provide a legal writing sample to be included with your application. You do not need to create a new writing sample for this application as you can upload one you used for another purpose.

  • Excellent research and writing skills
  • An interest and willingness to address the broader policy and technology challenges to Mozilla’s mission of advancing the open web
