Concord is seeking law students who are currently 1L or 2L students at ABA-approved law schools for paid summer 2023 internships in the Business & Legal Affairs Department.


Concord’s Business & Legal Affairs team is comprised of 40+ professionals who provide business and legal affairs support to Concord’s three primary divisions: Recorded Music, Music Publishing, and Theatricals. The team works closely with A&R, Finance, Royalties, and Licensing in each division. Students who are selected for these internships will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of business and legal affairs matters in each of Concord’s divisions. Work experience may include shadowing or assisting with mergers and acquisitions; frontline artist, writer, and author signings; contract summaries and administration; new media licensing; infringement and litigation; and more. Our goal is to provide a varied, educational, and engaging legal experience for interns, while enabling them to contribute to Concord and its operations in a meaningful way.

Applicants should have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team in a fast-paced environment; excellent judgement and ability to prioritize tasks; attention to detail and strong follow- up skills; excellent organizational and communication skills; and be tech savvy with experience using Microsoft Office (specifically Office 365, including Outlook, Word, and Excel). Ideally candidates will have had some exposure to intellectual property law or copyright law. Candidates must have a demonstrated passion for music business.



While Concord has offices across the world, summer 2023 internships will operate on a hybrid schedule out of our Los Angeles, Nashville, and New York City offices. The program will be 11 weeks, with an anticipated start date of June 5th. Concord is committed to creating a diverse work environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We employ, train, compensate, and promote regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, veteran status, and other protected status as required by applicable law. We believe that diversity, inclusion, and equity are paramount for the creation of music, theater, and film that celebrates and empowers all cultures.


Interested candidates should submit a cover letter (including a statement of the unique contributions they will bring to Concord), resume, and recent transcript through the ICIMS link on the job posting (e.g., through the ICIMS link on LinkedIn, Simplicity, etc.). Applications received through channels other than the ICIMS portal will not be viewed. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis with final decisions expected to be made by April 14th.
