Blue Origin interns participate in legal projects in association with the business and technical functions supporting the design, development and operations of engines, rockets, payloads, and human spaceflight. Interns work directly with our Legal and Compliance team to help mature contracting process and terms which may include legal research on best practices for effective mitigation of litigation risk for both customer and supplier contracting projects at various locations nationally and internationally. Work may be related to commercial and government contracts, regulatory and government affairs, intellectual property, and sales and marketing. Students gain real-life experience that allows them to apply classroom learning to real business challenges and will have the opportunity to work with their supervisor to develop work product that can be used as a future writing sample.
