City Law School strikes internship deal K&L Gates

The City Law School has teamed up with K&L Gates, which will see one of its LLM students take up an international energy litigation internship with the firm.

As part of the new scheme, which is open to students studying the energy litigation programme, the intern will spend three months from May to July based in K&L Gate’s Paris office each academic year.

Dean of the City Law School professor Susan Nash said: “This opportunity will provide the winning LLM student with a flying start to a legal career in international energy litigation.”

A shortlist will be drawn up from those students scoring the highest marks in their coursework and all finalists are set to be interviewed in March 2011 by a team from K&L Gates.

The successful student will also get an automatic two-month extension for completion of their LLM dissertation.
