Internships and Attachments

We believe that a rich and rewarding internship experience, is a vital first step in cultivating well-rounded Dispute Resolution lawyers.

The Thomas Philip Internship Programme is a practical programme open to Malaysian and International law students interested in pursuing a legal career in litigation or dispute resolution.

We strive to give our interns hands-on opportunities to put what they have learnt in law school into practice.

Internships are generally for a one-month duration. Longer  or shorter durations may be accommodated on a case-to-case basis.
The program focuses on core skills such as interviewing, ethics, communication, research, drafting and advocacy. Our interns work with lawyers in the practice on actual client matters and attend trials, hearings, appeals and client meetings when appropriate.
