Our students are encouraged to find and apply to internships to see how practitioners apply their legal skills and how laws are developed. Three LLM graduates discuss their internships and how they helped their careers and preparation for PhDs.
Our CEPMLP students are encouraged to look and apply for internships which, in some cases, can even be used in place of their course dissertation
