Information Privacy Internships

The Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) is a self-regulatory trade association of nearly 100 Internet advertising companies, including Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and AOL. Our offices in Kennebunk ME and Washington DC work on driving policy, with a focus on Internet and privacy law. We have a history of consistently hiring Maine Law students, many of who have gone on to high-level positions at companies such as Yahoo, Accenture, and AppNexus.

The NAI was formed to safeguard consumer privacy, and to preserve free content on the Internet through the support of responsible advertising practices. We are currently working on a number of exciting projects including a sensible implementation of the Do Not Track standard, a revised Code of Conduct to deal with a changing technological landscape in tracking technologies, and expansion into the Mobile sphere.

Law Clerk duties include traditional and international legal research, writing briefs and position papers, as well as tracking and analysis of relevant legislative developments. Additionally, Law Clerks may assist in investigating compliance with the NAI's self regulatory standards.

The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) is a Washington, DC based think tank that seeks to advance responsible data practices. The forum is led by Internet privacy experts Jules Polonetsky and Christopher Wolf and includes an advisory board comprised of leading figures from industry, academia, law and advocacy groups.

Past Maine Law students have been interns at the think tank and found it to be a great opportunity to gain knowledge in an emerging area lead by leading global privacy professionals. An intern's duties typically include assisting with in-depth research on policy related issues, drafting website content, and covering DC area privacy events (Capitol Hill, NTIA, etc) as needed.
