We are super elated to announce an internship program starting on the 9th of January, 2023 till 27th of January, 2023.
An internship programme is a professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work related to a student’s field of study or career interest.
Our partnership with The Legal Issues International births this and we can’t wait to give it our best shot.
The following are few reasons why every law student should do an internship during their legal career.
Learning how to put your law school education to use.
The academic curriculum for law students is structured in such a way that it goes through numerous articles, sections, jargons, statutes, provisos, and case laws of a country’s constitution. The program requires pupils to grasp authoritative ideas, analyze burning judgments, and adhere to established conventions. However, just avoiding this knowledge in tests will not result in a superior comprehension. As a result, students must understand how to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to the business or legal worlds. Internships help you to become acquainted with practical methods while also thinking outside the box.
Internships pull you away from your routine and introduce you to different places, people, and situations. Internships allow you to contact with and be introduced to people of your age with similar interests or authoritative persons in the legal sector in terms of knowledge and experience. Because they come from diverse cultures, locations, or backgrounds, your co-interns can bring unique perspectives to the table. It may extend your viewpoint and encourage you to think beyond a topic. In every internship, you must learn from your mentors rather than impress them. A strong connection with your mentor may benefit you in a variety of ways, such as career guidance or suggestions.
Experimenting and discovering what works best for you on a regular basis
The internship is an excellent opportunity to investigate and learn about numerous career paths. It can serve as a mirror and provide you with real-world experience from which you can pick your law career routes or employment role in the law profession.
Acquiring new skills
An internship may teach you skills such as collaboration, time management, keeping a regulated atmosphere with your co-interns, and patience. Internships can help legal students improve crucial skills such as logical reasoning, articulated writing style, and public speaking. There may be times in law school when some laws, rules, and regulations become obsolete, but an internship may explain and bring you in contact with future expectations or needs.
An internship can help you build your resume/curriculum vitae.
During your internship, you will have the opportunity to test your brain efficiency and patience. A law student should continue to think and strive for clarity on whatever they are observing. However, you can only better yourself if you are aware of your flaws and where you stand in comparison to others. An internship provides significant experience for a student interested in pursuing a career in law.
At Platinum & Taylor Hill LP, we are all about impact and value.
