A summer internship is the perfect way to learn about working at Cavenagh Law and meet our people. This opportunity not only allows you to gain work experience in a first-class working environment, it is often the first step in your career path as a lawyer.
We offer two summer internship programmes for a period of four weeks each throughout June and July. This programme is held jointly with Clifford Chance, our formal law alliance partner.
To apply for a summer internship, you must be eligible to be admitted to the Singapore Bar. Please refer to the Singapore Institute of Legal Education (SILE) for information on the approved universities, recognised degrees and the "qualified person" requirements. You must also be in a position to start your practice training contract with Cavenagh Law LLP in January 2026.
As well as a consistently strong academic record, we are seeking candidates who can demonstrate intellectual curiosity, common sense, strong interpersonal skills, an interest in business, and the capacity to quickly grasp detailed information.
A salary of S$1,800 will be paid to you for the four-week programme, and you'll have the chance to take part in various training sessions, networking events and socials during your time here.
What can interns expect to experience on the programme?
Our internship programme gives interns a sense of what life is like in a cutting-edge law firm. The main parts of the programme include:
Placement in two of our practice groups (interns will be able to state a preference for practice groups and these will be accommodated where possible).
Assigned buddies to be a point of contact during the internship.
Working on on-going transactions alongside our lawyers and partners, and the chance to attend/observe meetings and calls where appropriate.
