Bright Network's Internship Experience 2021 

Get essential career experience this summer with Bright Network's Internship Experience UK

While some offices are beginning to open up again and firms are gradually adopting a ‘hybrid’ approach to in-person and at home events, this does not make up for the lost opportunities brought on by the pandemic. Throughout last summer, many students and young people found themselves with no vacation scheme to attend and no work experience to add to their CVs. As a law student, these experiences are vital, not only to enhance your learning but to help secure the all-important training
contract. As a result of the pandemic, graduates are now feeling less confident career-wise than ever before and, as the pandemic continues to cause uncertainty among young people, there are growing concerns as to how this generation will be affected in the long run. 

Despite this, there are still many opportunities available to those students and graduates who, despite last year’s setbacks, are still persevering and continuously developing their skills. One of these opportunities is Bright Network’s Internship Experience UK, a free, virtual three-day programme that helped thousands of law students and recent graduates use their time productively and gain experience in the law industry last year, all from the comfort and safety of their own homes. This summer, Internship Experience UK is back with more sectors, more employers and more opportunities!

What does it entail?

Across just three days, participants will have access to sector-specific sessions delivered by leading employers in Commercial Law, core skill sessions designed by the Bright Network team, and the opportunity to complete a work sample designed to simulate a real project you would work on as an intern, including an international arbitration task designed by Clyde & Co. During the experience, there
will also be sessions on how to be a model professional and how to effectively solve problems, as well as the chance to learn about corporate litigation and the class action revolution with Slaughter and May. Herbert Smith Freehills will also talk about legal thinking skills, and there will be opportunities to attend
alumni office hours and network with fellow interns.  Last year, thousands of law students took part in this event and went on to secure roles with the firms they met during the experience, and this year there are even more employers to connect with.
