Ruger is seeking a bright, energetic law school student (1L or 2L) to work for the summer as a paid intern, (10 weeks) in its small, dedicated legal department in Southport. The variety of tasks for one lucky person are limited only by her/his imagination as the Legal Department manages all the legal affairs of the Company; every day is an adventure!

About the Candidate: Candidates for this position must be enrolled in an ABA accredited law school and have completed at least one year of law school before beginning the internship in May 2020. The ideal candidate also will:

  • Be interested in a wide variety of legal and business issues. (Translation: If your sole purpose in life is to become a patent attorney, this likely is not the best internship for you.)
  • Possess excellent interpersonal skills and be able to work effectively with a variety of corporate clients and the occasional highly idiosyncratic person. (Translation: You have to be able to get along and fit in.)
  • Have a demonstrated and acute attention to detail. (Translation: If others are correcting your work, you are not right for this internship – the boss is a stickler for details.)
  • Have excellent writing, speaking and presentation skills. (Translation: You must have a firm grasp of the English language. Note that this includes writing like normal people; if your forte is converting plain English into legalese, that could be a problem.)
  • Have a sense of humor. (Translation: The law is serious business and the Ruger legal team takes its responsibilities very seriously. But if you have not laughed or cracked a joke in five years, you might not be a good fit. And, you might be better served by a vacation than an internship.)
  • Experience with firearms is a plus. (Translation: We make firearms. If you are philosophically opposed to firearms or firearm ownership for any reason, please do not apply. On the other hand, if you are an avid shooter, this could be a good summer opportunity.)
  • Reliable transportation. (Translation: The position is in Southport and you will be expected to travel to/from Southport Monday through Friday and travel during normal commuting hours. Be mindful of the commute, which includes the I-95 morning parking lot.)

About the Process:
If: (1) you got this far; AND (2) you are still interested; AND (3) you really, really, really think you satisfy the requirements of an ideal candidate, then please go to our career site and submit your resume, cover letter and a writing sample for consideration. Applications will be reviewed as received. If we have further interest, we will reach out to you directly. Thank you, for your interest in Ruger Firearms.
