Global Litigation Virtual Internship

At Herbert Smith Freehills, we make your personal and professional growth our business. And as part of the team, your ambition is yours too. Ultimately, a career with us is about embracing all you are and all you can be. Our firm will change with you and be changed by you, so we can achieve our ambitions together.

Every deal or transaction carries the risk of a dispute with it. Successful businesses require lawyers that can pre-empt the issues that may surface, take steps to minimise them and then react quickly and effectively when a dispute arises. Our ability to collaborate between offices and to quickly draw together large international teams means our clients benefit from 24-hour attention on time-sensitive matters.

The Global Litigation Virtual Experience gives you the opportunity to work on some of the challenges that we tackle on a daily basis. You’ll learn about the various steps involved in dispute resolution and assist with a business development opportunity. The modules have challenging tasks that accurately reflect the work performed by our disputes teams. In real life, you would have the chance to discuss any issues with your supervisor and colleagues, so you wouldn't have to tackle the tasks alone.

We also appreciate you have different levels of experience and knowledge and that some of you will not have studied law – that’s not a problem; all of the tasks (whether involving legal issues or not) can be tackled by applying general analysis and critical thinking skills.

If this sounds interesting to you, come and participate in our Virtual Experience programme: we’d love to hear from you.

Our virtual internships are a chance to develop legal skills and knowledge from the comfort of your home. Created in partnership with Forage, this multi-module course spans key areas of law and offers insight into the kind of work you might take on at HSF. We recommend setting 7-9 hours aside to complete each module.
