A couple of weeks ago we caught up with our 2019 techlaw interns at our Auckland office.
It was a great chance for the interns to share their experiences so far, and for us to hear their stories about law in the real world.
We were impressed by the range of legal work the interns have been involved in. They have had hands on experience in the operation of tech companies and have worked on documents and legal issues that tech companies need to wrangle on a day to day basis.
The quality of legal work the interns have received is thanks to the fabulous supervisors from our host companies, who generously give their time and experience to supervise and mentor the interns. Many interns mentioned that working with their supervisors has been the highlight of the programme so far.
Interns mentioned how different the practice of law is from the theory they are learning at law school (thankfully, we say). They have also gained some useful insights into the papers they can take to best position themselves for their future careers.
Keep an eye out for our wrap-up report at the end of the year.
