Brandeis Law student to spend summer working on late-night TV

Like many law students, Brandeis Law first-year student Kathryn Waller will spend her summer doing research.

But she won't be looking up judicial rulings or changes to the legal code — she'll be digging through Google and social media platforms to find information on guests appearing on Conan.

Waller will head to Los Angeles this summer to work as a research intern for the late-night television show.

Her main role will be to research upcoming guests and highlight any interesting or surprising facts about them. She'll pass that information on to the show's research department and producers, who will discuss her findings with the guests' publicists to determine what host Conan O'Brien will ask them.

"It's a lot of research, so it will get me used to that," Waller says about how the experience might impact her legal career. 

But mostly, she is hoping to make strong connections and network while she's in LA.
