As a follow up to the the Spotlight on Government Employer Fair, we plan to feature several internships/externships for summer 2014 in the coming weeks on Hoya Headlines. Starting with the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC)
OPIC Legal Affairs is now accepting applications for summer 2014.
OPIC is the key federal agency for encouraging mutually beneficial American business investments in the world’s developing nations. OPIC provides investors with project financing, investment insurance and a variety of investor services in approximately 150 developing nations and emerging economies throughout the world.
For a law student interested in finance and the legal aspects of international business transactions, an OPIC internship provides exposure to many facets of international investment, from structuring project financings to the assessment of political risks and evaluation of claims in connection with OPIC’s insurance contracts. An internship with OPIC’s Department of Legal Affairs gives students a comprehensive overview of the operations and effectiveness of OPIC programs in support of international transactions.
The internship is an opportunity for practical application of legal principles in such areas as corporate law, administrative law, public international law, international business transactions, insurance, banking, and finance. Law student interns help OPIC’s attorneys advise OPIC in matters relating to insurance, finance, investment funds and administration and can be assigned to a number of legal research and writing projects.
