This course is designed to enable law students to tackle two major challenges: secure corporate internships (at corporate law firms or companies) and perform extraordinarily well so that you can get a job offer. Typical ways are securing a PPO (pre-placement offer), a job interview or a call back for a subsequent internship (with a sense that it may convert into a job offer).
To be successful in securing and excelling in a corporate internship, you need to plan and prepare well ahead. We observed the process and journey of securing a corporate law internship and converting one into a job offer for hundreds of law students and then identified the elements that worked and that didn’t work. This program is developed to enable you to acquire those skills before you even walk into a corporate internship. You will be able to build yourself into a person whom a law firm seeks out. A wide range of topics are covered in a huge amount of detail, such as:
How to draft an effective CV
How to write an effective cover letter
Guides for performing different kinds of tasks at an internship
How to excel at due diligence
How to excel at proof-reading assignments and learn for the future
Comprehensive technical skills training on M&A, Corporate, Debt Finance, FDI, General Corporate and Stamp Duty
Hacks for high-powered Google, Manupatra, MCA and BSE searches
Presentation and formatting techniques
Learn how to read and interpret financials of a business
Internship Plan for mapping out your internship progress
How to write expert-level articles that catch client and recruiter attention
How to draw complex corporate structures in PowerPoint from Day 1
How to build expertise in any area of law
How to network effectively before, during and after your internship
Detailed interview preparation modules for technical and HR-style interviews
There will be 5 online trainings around CV creation, building your LinkedIn profile, email writing and follow-up training, a contract drafting exercise and a feedback session on your articles. You will also publish and promote 5 corporate law-related articles online.
The above themes are discussed in a significant amount of detail. Anxiety and fear are confidence-killers and often lead to failed interviews or internship experiences. We want you to be completely free and at ease when you are applying for a law firm internship or sitting in an interview, and clear that you have got what it takes to make it through.
