The Right Fit
The best way of finding out whether we are the right firm for you is to spend time with us. Many of our interns return as Pupils and qualify as lawyers with us.
What to expect
An internship with us will provide you with a better understanding of our many specialised practice areas and will help you decide which area of practice you are interested in. During your internship, you will shadow and be mentored by an Associate who will help you get the most out of your time here.
Our internship programmes are designed to allow you to experience life as a lawyer and to gain an insight into the Firm's culture. Your experience with us will depend on the practice team which you will be interning with. For example, some of you will have the opportunity to attend court hearings and visit various government agencies, as well as to work on actual matters and undertake tasks such as preparing research memorandums and drafting legal documentation. You will also be invited to participate in training programmes organised for our lawyers and pupils so that you have an idea of the training you can expect as a Pupil and as an Associate. Needless to say, our interns are also invited to join in our social and CSR events.
Our structured internship programme runs for a period of four weeks and interns will have the opportunity to intern in two practice areas during the course of the programme.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview.
Interns will be entitled to receive an allowance during their period of internship with us.
We do not have a limit as to the number of interns we take on at a time but we do have to contend with space constraints.
We don't have a fixed criteria when it comes to assessing internship applications. A strong academic performance will stand an applicant in good stead but we also consider an applicant's interests, extra-curricular activities and leadership roles.
You can express a preference for a department or practice area, however, due to the number of interns that we accept, it may not be possible for us to accommodate all requests for specific practice areas.
We will consider any such requests we receive, subject to administrative constraints. Internships shorter than two weeks are not recommended as they tend to be too short for you to truly gain an insight into the Firm.
You will be given the opportunity to do one rotation during the course of your internship. An internship is the best time for you to find out which area of practice interests you.
Our suggestion is that you begin doing internship during or after you have completed your second year of law school. The reason for this is that with some basic legal training, you will derive more value from your internship.
Yes, you will have the opportunity to do some actual legal work. Bear in mind though that the type of work you get depends on factors such as the specific matters which are active during your internship.
