WilmerHale offers International Arbitration Summer Internships for students at The City Law School

LLB students offered opportunity to obtain work experience with the leading international law firm

nullMajor international law firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP is offering second year LLB students the chance to apply for a highly sought after internship with the international arbitration group in their London office.

This paid internship, which will take place during summer 2013, is an opportunity to obtain experience in one of the world's premier international arbitration and dispute resolution practices. The group has been involved in more than 600 proceedings in recent years, successfully represented clients in four of the largest institutional arbitrations, and several of the most significant ad hoc arbitrations, to arise in the past decade.

Centred in London, the practice has additional team members in New York, Washington, Palo Alto, Berlin, Frankfurt, Brussels and Beijing. The group includes some seventy lawyers from common law and civil law jurisdictions who specialize in both commercial and public international law disputes.

Students obtaining the highest scores on the core LLB modules will be offered an interview with WilmerHale. Professor Carl Stychin, Dean of The City Law School, commented:

"I am delighted that WilmerHale had agreed to provide this opportunity for City's LLB students. This will provide our students with the rare opportunity to experience world class international legal practice in the heart of the City of London".

Steven Finizio, partner in the international arbitration group at WilmerHale in London said:

"Our award-winning Arbitration Internship programme welcomes applications from exceptional candidates from all jurisdictions who want to learn more about international arbitration. Our practice is currently particularly interested in candidates with an English law background, and those with fluency in more than one language."

Interns at WilmerHale typically work closely on active cases with lawyers at all levels. In the last year, interns have assisted with multiple evidentiary hearings in London, Amsterdam and Vienna. Intern responsibilities include legal research, writing first drafts of memoranda and legal submissions, factual research and preparing of speeches, academic papers and textbook chapters. Interns are fully involved in the London office, and are welcome to attend regular internal training lunches and practice group social events. The offer of the internship is subject to Terms and Conditions
