FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I apply for an internship?
Please click on the link above to apply for an internship with our firm.
What would be my role?
During your internship with us, your assignments will relate almost exclusively to litigation and arbitration practice.
The firm provides specialist civil dispute resolution and litigation services to its clients, in trial courts, appellate courts, writ proceedings, consumer matters and arbitral tribunals. The tasks typically assigned to interns include research, drafting, assistance with filing and conferences in ongoing matters, including attendance for observing court proceedings in the matters on which you have worked.
When can I apply for an internship?
Please apply at least two months in advance of the proposed start date of your internship.
For eg: For an internship commencing on 1st August 2022, please apply latest by the first of June 2022.
How do I know/ track my application status?
We will update you on the status of your application based on your internship application date and subject to availability of slots.
We do not have a dedicated HR team to handle internships and all applications are carefully reviewed and then decided by associates themselves. Please be considerate of this and do not send repeated reminders as we endeavour to respond to each application 3 to 4 weeks before the internship period commences. Do not call or directly contact associates on the status of your applications.
We will certainly notify you on your application status. However, given the volume of applications we receive and the size of the team, it is not logistically possible for us to provide feedback on all unsuccessful applications.
How is my application assessed?
We decide all internship applications based on merit and not merely on whether vacancies are available.
If your application would have been accepted but for a lack of vacancies, you will be specifically informed of this and asked to reapply at a later date of your choice.
Are interns paid a stipend?
For all physical internships (three weeks and above), a modest stipend is usually paid. An increased stipend is paid to those starting/in their final year of study. For further details, you may refer to the internship policy for the office where you apply, which will be provided to you after selection, as stipend policies may vary slightly from office to office.
