INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

We are a group of leading domestic and international business law firms, based in Thailand. We offer academically gifted law students the opportunity to learn from experienced lawyers in many different practice areas.


Our internship program offers a select number of university students (and university graduates) the opportunity to gain exposure to a thriving law practice. In order to sharpen your legal skills, you will work alongside reputable and talented lawyers and experience an inclusive culture that encourages contribution and helps you to start fulfilling your potential. You will be assigned to help handle a variety of client cases. Work experience cannot be taught at law school. Effective lawyers are built, not born. The internship will focus on the concept of ‘training by doing’, as we believe that a hands-on approach can only give long term benefit to the intern. The activities of the legal intern will include:

 

  • conducting basic legal research and gathering facts;
  • preparing written advice;
  • drafting contracts, agreements etc;
  • learning to create rational, reasonable arguments and making the right decisions;
  • gathering knowledge necessary for problem solving and applying the law to fix client problems;
  • being present at court hearings; and
  • various other tasks that may assist SCL Law Group lawyers in their duties.

Local Internship Program

 

All of our interns participate directly in real cases involving a wide range of legal issues, including conducting legal research, legal writing in Thai and English and analysis. The intern will discover how a claimant's attorney gathers their proof for critical pre-trial rulings and for trial.
