You'll be exposed to a broad range of interesting matters, plus you'll perform tasks such as conducting research, reviewing documents, presenting documents, attending client meetings, mediations and settlements. It's the perfect way to discover the area of law that excites you most.

If your application is successful, you will have the choice of joining one of our three, three-week programs during summer or winter.
