What's new for 2024?

More focused

2024 has four streams, to give you a more indepth overview of the sectors and access to more employers and content within each stream. 

Bespoke panels

Attend bespoke panels designed to give attendees a unique perspective of what life in the law sector is like from relatable firm representatives. This will help you gain insights into the industry and tips on how you can navigate your early career successfully.

Networking for VIP Top 50

At the end of the programme, engaged attendees who participated in all four days of Internship Experience UK will be nominated as the Top 50 for the Commercial Law stream. These attendees will then be invited to attend an exclusive networking event to meet Clyde & Co. This is a stellar opportunity to get quality time with an industry leader and gain a unique experience to talk about in interviews. 

Engaging workshops with audience

Throughout the four days, IEUK will be hosting various workshops to boost engagement and collaboration. These workshops are tailored to encourage you to work with other attendees and by yourself to solve real challenges that you may face as a trainee lawyer.
