The Indiana University Office of the Vice President & General Counsel calls application for Legal Fellowship for a three-year, full-time position in Bloomington or Indianapolis, beginning in Fall 2021 (August or September).

Position Summary

During the course of the fellowship, Fellows work closely with the other attorneys in the OVPGC and with University clients directly to provide legal support across Indiana University’s eight-campus system and to gain exposure to the varied needs of a major state university. Fellows are mentored and gain substantive experience in a broad range of legal areas, including athletics and sports law, copyright and trademark, Title IX, student affairs, labor and employment law, institutional compliance, academic freedom, and First Amendment issues, privacy, environmental law, bankruptcy, information technology, health care law, and contracts.

Additionally, Fellows draft position statements to submit to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Office for Civil Rights, and other state and federal agencies; coordinate the University’s responses to subpoenas and open records requests; draft memoranda of law educating University clients about legal issues and institutional compliance; and draft, review, and revise University contracts and a variety of other legal documents.
