We offer penultimate-year law students studying at a university in India the opportunity to work in our London office for three weeks between June and August each year.

You must be performing at the highest academic level at your university. You should apply during your penultimate year for an internship to take place the following year.

You will join our London vacation scheme programme, and will sit in two different departments over the three-week period. We will ask you which two practice areas you would ideally like to experience.

During the internship, you will sit in the same room as a partner or associate and be given real work for real clients. In addition, you will be involved in workshops and presentations that provide an insight into the breadth of our practice areas.

We will also arrange formal and informal social events at which you can meet other students, as well as partners, associates and trainees. At the end of the internship, you will have an interview for a training contract and should have a good idea whether law is the career for you - and whether that career might be with us.

Applications for the 2019 internship are open from 1 June - 14 July 2018
