Vacation Internships

Ideally, your first introduction to the firm would be as an intern during your law school vacations. The best way of finding out whether we are the right firm for you is to spend time with us. Many of our interns return as Practice Trainees and qualify as lawyers with us.

An internship with us will provide you with a better understanding of our many specialised practice areas and will help you decide which area of practice you are interested in. During your internship, you will be mentored by a Partner and will shadow an Associate who will help you get the most out of your internship.

Our internship programmes are designed to allow you to experience life as a lawyer and to gain an insight into the Firm's culture. You will have the opportunity to attend court hearings and client meetings, as well as to work on actual matters and undertake tasks such as preparing research memorandums and drafting legal documentation. You will also be invited to participate in training programmes organised for our lawyers so that you have an idea of the training you can expect as a Practice Trainee and an Associate. Needless to say, our interns are also invited to join in all social events, including our traditional welcome drinks for each batch of interns.

Internship Periods

We run five structured internship programmes, during which time you can join us for a period of three weeks. For 2019, the internship programme and application periods are:

  1. 6 May to 24 May
  2. 3 June to 21 June
  3. 1 July to 19 July
  4. 5 August to 23 August
  5. 2 September to 20 September

Whilst we do accept applications for internships outside of these periods on an ad hoc basis, we would encourage students to join us for the internship programmes as there will be planned activities and lectures for students.

Interns will be entitled to receive an honorarium during their period of internship with us.

How to apply

Applications should be made through our online application portal.

You will be asked to complete a short online application form and to attach a covering letter, transcripts of your results achieved in your LLB examinations to date and copies of your GCE "A" and "O" level certificates.

If you are unable to complete our online application form or experience technical difficulties submitting our online application form, please inform us by sending an email to attachments@allenandgledhill.com.


We know that it can be difficult to decide which firms to do an internship with, so we've put together a list of questions posed by our interns which you might find useful.
