Internship season is around the corner. Obtaining an internship is but the first step to gaining more professional experience and connecting with the legal community.

 

In this webinar, we will follow the journey of a fictional law student who goes for her first internship at a fictional company and discuss common issues that she faces. What information should you find out before your first day? What if you want to take time off in the middle of your internship? What should you do if you made a mistake during your internship?

 

This webinar is organised by SCCA Student Chapter. SCCA Student Chapter aims to bring the wider law student community together and to develop the next generation of in-house counsels. For more information on the SCCA Student Chapter and to take part in its activities, please visit here.
