McDermott offers arbitration internship to City Law School students

City Law School LLM students are in the running for an internship with US firm McDermott Will & Emery.

Students interested in international litigation will have the chance to work with international abitration lawyers in McDermott’s Frankurt office for three months and will have access to numerous cross-border arbitration cases.

Alan Riley, director of the LLM programme, said: “We’re trying to provide students with competitive, paid internships. The cases students might come across will be broad international arbitration; whether it’s energy or investment disputes or other multi-billion dollar cases.”

The internship is available for students specialising in international arbitration, public international law, international energy litigation, world trade law and admiralty law. A group of students with the highest coursework scores will be selected for interview by a McDermott team in March, which will then select one student.

The internship, funded by the firm, will run from May to July.

Last month, City appointed new dean Carl Stychin (3 December 2012).

Students at City are already being offered the chance to win an international internship with Shearman & Sterling, Sidley Austin or Stibbe (9 October 2012).
