The Law Department at Bristol-Myers Squibb invites law students to submit applications for our 2016 Diversity & Inclusion Law Department Summer Internship Program. We are seeking qualified law students of diverse backgrounds who are interested in obtaining a unique experience within a world-class corporate law and compliance environment. First year students are preferred, but students at different stages of their legal education will be considered, including LLM students. Summer internships are not expected to lead to an offer of full-time employment.

Bristol-Myers Squibb is a global BioPharma company focused on the discovery, development and delivery of innovative medicines to help people prevail against such serious diseases as cancer, cardiovascular disease, hepatitis C, HIV and rheumatoid arthritis. Since 1999, our summer internship program has consistently attracted outstanding students from diverse backgrounds who share a common interest in learning more about corporate practice at a global BioPharma company. In addition to gaining in-house experience, our program provides learning opportunities in areas of the law relevant to the pharmaceutical industry. Past activities have included direct exposure with clients and outside counsel, monthly seminars conducted by senior management representatives of various business units, career development programs, tours of our manufacturing facilities and an opportunity to present to the General Counsel.

This year, we plan to host up to eight students in various areas and supporting multiple geographies within compliance and legal practice, including regulatory, corporate/transactional, employment/privacy, intellectual property and litigation, primarily at our offices in Central New Jersey.

The attached brochure provides more information about the program, including our Recruitment Profile. Please share this information with your students and encourage them to apply for this rewarding opportunity. Please send all applications to by January 4, 2016.
