What can you learn from our internship?
At Y S Chung Law, we view a successful internship as one that facilitates three (3) significant aspects of your development: personal, professional and civic consciousness.
You enter our internship program at different points of your development in the categories and with care and attention, you can (and we hope you will) grow in all three areas as well.
The internship is an opportunity for intellectual and emotional development that will be important in your life, whichever career path you choose. You will develop the ability to form a critical perspective on complex facts and learn how to process information meticulously under pressure while working in a team. There will also be opportunities to work independently while testing your own creative capacity to do so.
While some interns enter an internship for career exploration, there are some who take the opportunity to apply what they have learnt in their academic experience. Of course for some, their purpose would fall between these two reasons. For everyone though, an internship affords the opportunity to take the next step, to acquire knowledge, develop skills and appreciate the social norms and values of the legal profession.
Regardless of whether you embark on a legal career eventually, the internship is an opportunity to learn some of the knwoledge, skills and values that will help you participate productively in your community one day. The civic skills you learn may help you advocate change in your neighbourhood or community so that conditions become more equitable for everyone. You will also begin to appreciate why understanding social issues is an obligation for everyone, not just for those in law, politics or journalism.
Immerse yourself in the Y S Chung work & culture
Our Student Internship Program and Student Vacation Scheme are exciting ways to find out more about life at Y S Chung.
You will do real work that adds value to our Firm, participate in group exercises, meet clients and our Professionals, and catch up at social events organized by our Trainees. It is your opportunity to really immerse yourself in the work and culture that Y S Chung has to offer.
Applying for an internship at Y S Chung is simple and straightforward. We read every application which we receive and shortlist on the basis of merit alone. If at the end of the internship, you decide that you would like to be considered for a Training Contract, you will have an interview. You will be assessed on your performance during your internship.
Am I eligible?
You’re eligible to apply for the vacation scheme if you are a JC, Polytechnic or University student.
Our Student Internship Program and Vacation Scheme are very competitive. If you are applying for a training contract, don’t worry if you didn’t get a place on our Vacation Scheme – we will still consider your application.
To apply for a place on our vacation scheme, complete our application form and write a personal statement of up to 850 words.
If you are invited to the next stage of the process, you may need to complete a critical thinking test to assess your suitability. If you are successful at that stage, we will invite you for an interview.
