Get inspired and gain valuable practical experience by taking part in the popular WS Society Summer Internship programme. The internship offers a unique opportunity to raise your profile and sharpen skills in preparation for the world of legal work. Past interns have gone on to attain a vast range of legal positions across the UK, from magic circle law firms to niche practices, public sector and in-house training contracts. You will develop your legal knowledge, written and research abilities, learn about the needs of modern legal practices and build your confidence through the delivery of a presentation on a topical area of law. The WS internship is the ideal step towards the traineeship.
