Job Description

As part of Arnold & Porter's Foreign Attorney Program, our Washington, DC and New York offices are seeking foreign attorneys with bilingual fluency in English and Spanish, and strong written skills in both languages, to work with the International Arbitration group in a temporary position for a term of approximately one year. The arbitration practice features cases before ICSID, the ICC, and other arbitral fora.

The Arnold & Porter Foreign Attorney Program is designed to allow foreign attorneys to understand firsthand the variety of services that our attorneys provide for their clients. Foreign attorneys participate in an Arnold & Porter program that allows them to observe and participate in US law firm practice, and learn about various legal proceedings. Foreign attorneys attend firm seminars and training programs on US legal issues and international legal issues, and actively observe and participate in cases in their areas of practice, including attending client meetings, hearings, strategy sessions and reviewing relevant case documents. Foreign attorneys also undertake legal research and writing. Foreign attorneys work collaboratively with Arnold & Porter attorneys on various matters.

Qualified applicants must have, at a minimum, a law degree-equivalent at a university in the foreign attorney’s home country, bar membership in the foreign attorney's home country, and preferably also an LLM degree from an ABA accredited US law school (or current enrollment in such an LLM program). Finally, all applicants should have excellent professional and academic credentials and references.
