Meta / Kilpatrick Townsend 1L Diversity Internship Program (ATL)


Meta’s 1L Diversity Summer Associate Program gives diverse rising 2L students the opportunity to gain substantive legal experience at a law firm and insight into in-house practice at Meta Legal. Summer associates will spend around eight weeks at a law firm and an additional two weeks at Meta. Kilpatrick Townsend will employ the summer associate for the full duration of the program (around ten weeks) and the summer associate is placed at Meta Legal for the last two weeks of the program.


The Meta portion of the program will be remote and summer associates will have the following opportunities:

  • In-house exposure to chosen practice area (e.g., shadowing meetings, deeper dives into discrete legal issues, etc.)
  • Practice area seminars conducted by our in-house counsel that highlight the issues that Meta Legal handles
  • Mentoring by Meta in-house counsel
  • Virtual social and networking opportunities 


Meta's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to connect people all over the world. Whether we're creating new products, envisioning the metaverse, or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Meta are builders at heart. Our products empower more than 3 billion people around the world to share ideas, offer support and make a difference. When we build for the world, we bring our talents, experiences, and passions with us – together, we can help people build stronger communities.


At Kilpatrick Townsend, Summer Associates will have the opportunity to do substantive work on a variety of projects throughout the summer, acquiring new skills and gaining invaluable legal experience. Summer Associates participate in dedicated progress evaluations to review attorney feedback on their work product. The Summer Committee members in each office serve as mentors for the course of the program providing guidance for evaluations, assigning work, and coaching Summer Associates.
