At Expert Institute, we’re building the smarter future of legal technology. Through our cloud-based expert service platform, Expert iQ, we empower attorneys with the expertise they need to win.
We’re proud to call some of the nation’s most prominent law firms as clients. Together with our network of over 3 million subject-matter experts, we’ve had a hand in securing over $20 billion in recovered value while working across recent civil rights, Big Tech, and major league sports-related litigation.
We’re making this all happen through a SaaS-enabled model: our team is the fuel helping the expert engine run. We’re a team of researchers, medical doctors, client advocates, business development leaders, and technologists. As we roll out new Expert iQ features, expand our client base, and onboard new experts, we’re always looking for growth-minded individuals to join the team.
Our 10-week summer internship program is designed to give you an immersive experience, where you’ll gain hands-on real world experience and will be welcomed by all of our team here at Expert Institute. During this internship candidates will receive role specific training, interact with members of our Executive team, and work on meaningful projects in the legal tech industry. Each intern will meet with department heads and company leaders to discuss business development skills ranging from professional business writing to best search strategies, and will receive performance feedback from their manager throughout the summer!
