More than 1,100 people who believe the scientific method is the best way to approach investing. Ideas backed up with information, and improved by iteration. That’s Two Sigma. We’re not your typical investment manager. We follow principles of technology and innovation as much as principles of investment management. Fields like machine learning and distributed computing guide us. Since 2001, we’ve searched for ways that these kinds of technologies can make us better at what we do. We never stop researching and developing. In the process, we work to help real people. Through our investors, we support the retirements of millions around the world. And we help fund breakthrough research, education and a wide range of charities and foundations.
Two Sigma’s legal internship provides an outstanding opportunity for you to learn and contribute to its legal team. Given the breadth and complexity of the legal work at Two Sigma, assignments will run the gamut, and responsibilities will include:
Two Sigma's goal is to provide its legal interns with work that is representative of the work that would be done by a junior attorney in an investment firm (or similar environment) or in the investment management practice group of a major law firm. You will have the chance to participate in department and team meetings and certain out-of-office activities (e.g., relevant industry/legal seminars).
Two Sigma recognizes that law school is very different from the real world practice of law and it aims to help its legal interns learn to make the transition from education to practice. Two Sigma is dedicated to training and will help you develop and hone the skills and abilities necessary to succeed in a variety of legal environments post-graduation. We will also provide you with regular and ongoing feedback. Throughout the summer internship program, you will have the opportunity to attend seminars taught by Two Sigma staff and outside specialists. There will be numerous opportunities to have fun as well. We are planning a range of social events (both inside and outside of the firm).
