Baker & McKenzie Wong & Leow provides valuable internship opportunities for bright and keen students who are keen to find out more about a career in law. The experience gained as an intern at Baker & McKenzie Wong & Leow is not only beneficial to the student, but also provides valuable insight into our law practice. We offer two types of internships:
- Vacation Internship Programme – this is a 2-3 week programme open to both local and overseas university students. Selected candidates will be attached to different practice groups within the firm, where they will be exposed to real-life client situations. This experience enables interns to develop skills that would otherwise not have been achieved in a classroom environment.
- Attachment Programme – this is applicable for university students who need internship for academic credit or graduation requirements (typically 6th semester or final year students). Students typically spend 8-12 weeks with us, working on projects under the supervision of lawyers within the practice group they are attached to.
