London Intern Program
The intern program, which runs from the firm’s London office, welcomes students in the final stages of their legal education, and practitioners in the early stages of their legal careers. The program provides participants from both civil and common law jurisdictions with exposure to the wide range of international commercial disputes handled in our Global International Arbitration Practice.
During their time at WilmerHale, interns are given the chance to put theory into practice by working with the International Arbitration Group’s lawyers on factual and legal assignments stemming from current cases, as well as the opportunity to further academic interests with involvement on research projects in conjunction with lawyers in the practice. The program provides interns the opportunity to work with our lawyers and professional staff as members of the team, and interns are actively encouraged to participate fully in all of the work and social aspects of the firm. We also encourage our interns to participate in training opportunities with the International Arbitration Group.
“WilmerHale’s Intern Program provided me with a chance to experience the world of international arbitration in practice,” says a former intern who is now an associate with the firm. “Exposure to highly regarded practitioners and the opportunity to work on some of the most exciting cases in the field helped cement my decision to pursue a career in international arbitration.”
