VACATION WORK PROGRAMME

VACATION WORK PROGRAMME AT BISSET BOEHMKE MCBLAIN


What does it take to become a successful attorney? Obtaining your law degree involves hard work and dedication, but this is only the beginning. In order to allow you to get a glimpse of the real world of legal practice, our firm offers two vacation work programmes during the June vacation each year.

As part of the vacation work programme students are exposed to the internal structures of a busy law firm and how it operates, interacting with the attorneys in our firm in a practical way. Students are furthermore challenged to engage with various legal problems faced by businesses and individuals. Our attorneys will also be sharing their knowledge and experiences with the students, giving them valuable insight into what an attorney deals with on a daily basis.

Some of the highlights of the programme include visits to the different courts and the opportunity for students to research a legal problem (in a group setting), prepare their legal argument and present it to the ‘judge’.

This is also a possible career opportunity, as we often identify potential candidate attorneys from the vacation work programmes.

To participate in our vacation work programme, please send the following to Ms Rifqah Omar at r.omar@bissets.com:

  • CV;
  • Letter motivating your inclusion in the programme;
  • Identity document; and
  • Academic transcript.
We can’t wait to meet you at the next vacation work programme.

Please note that applications for the vacation work programme for 2018 have now closed.
