Internship up for grabs for City Law School students

Aspiring lawyers at the City Law School are being invited to compete for an internship with Sidley Austin.

The news follows the US firm announcing it is rolling out its internship programme with the Legal Practice Course provider for another year.

Director of the LLM programme professor Alan Riley said: “This internship gives the winning student the opportunity to blend the knowledge that he or she develops on our courses with first-rate practical experience at one of the world’s top law firms.”

The US law firm initially struck a deal with the law school in 2006, offering three-month internships to graduates of the International Commercial Law LLM (read more).

The firm is offering a bursary of £5,000 for the placement, which will take place in Sidley’s Brussels office.

To apply students will need to submit an essay from their course and those who achieved top grades will be invited for an interview.
