An in-house lawyer is employed by a corporation.  The corporation may have one attorney or a large legal department.  Typically, very few opportunities exist for new graduates to start as in-house corporate counsel - these positions are generally filled through a lateral hire from a law firm or government agency.  However, some corporations will hire students as law clerks to work throughout the school year or over the summers.  In recent years, Georgetown Law students have spent their summers at a variety of corporations including ExxonMobil, Fox Sports, CitiSelect, Pepco Holdings, Liberty Mutual and many others.
