O+Z Copyright Fellowship

Oppenheim + Zebrak, LLP (“O+Z”) is pleased to announce the continuation of its Copyright Fellowship Program for Fall 2024. This program is exclusive to Howard University School of Law.

Fellowship Description

The O+Z Copyright Fellowship program enables outstanding law students to obtain real-world experience at a leading litigation boutique with a cutting-edge practice involving copyright, trademark, anti-piracy, and technology issues. Our lawyers have litigated some of the most high-profile copyright and internet matters of our time. Fellows will work alongside our lawyers, receive training and mentoring from them, and gain insight into the practice of law and our specific field.

Angel Wamae, who participated in the program in Fall 2023 and Spring 2024, as a 3L, described her experience as follows:

“I absolutely loved my fellowship experience at O+Z. I was able to spend my fall semester in the New York office and my spring semester in the DC office. Both of these experiences solidified my plan to work in IP law after graduation. The firm's environment was always positive, supportive, and friendly. I was encouraged to be an active team member which allowed me to learn from experienced attorneys who all went above and beyond to provide me with opportunities to learn and grow.”

O+Z is now accepting applications for the Copyright Fellowship for Fall Semester 2024. The particulars include:

  • The fellowship is for a student who will be in their second or third year of law school (classes of 2025 or 2026).
  • The fellowship is a paid, temporary position, open to one student per semester.
  • The fellowship program is based in O+Z’s Washington, D.C. office, where our attorneys and team members work on a hybrid remote/in-office basis.
  • The fall program will generally be 10 to 20 hours per week, depending on the fellow’s availability.

The application process is open to law students who are enrolled and in good standing at Howard University School of Law at the time of application. Criteria that may be considered include academic achievement, leadership abilities, interpersonal skills, and a demonstrated interest in copyright law, trademark law, and related litigation.
