The legal field is competitive and it won't be changing anytime soon.
But at least for now, there's an easier way to gain that competitive edge.
Unlike other legal internships, our students don't just focus on one sector of law, nor do we ask our students to simply fetch us coffees and scan our documents.
We invite distinguished lawyers from 16+ legal sectors to provide our interns with insights into their practice area, equipping our aspiring lawyers with the knowledge they need to decide their future expertise.
We are also joined by award-winning career coaches and legal recruiters who teach our interns the development strategies they need to achieve their dream legal careers.
Simply put, you're at the best place to LawyerUp.

Within just a week, I've already been exposed to so many areas of law -- some that I did not even know existed. As an intern, I also had my resume and LinkedIn optimized for recruiters and expanded my network exponentially.
