In July 2020, the InterLaw Diversity Forum held our first-ever Student Lab Summer Internship, a one-week event to support high-potential, diverse students, recent graduates, paralegals and trainees from all UK universities and backgrounds on their career journey by connecting them with their peers, law firms, barristers’ chambers, and corporate institutions through lectures, panel events, and interactive skills-based workshops.
The Student Lab Summer internship was open to applicants from all diverse (LGBT+, BAME, Disability, Gender) or socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Student Lab Summer Internship was exclusively sponsored by BPP University Law School.
Our curriculum included legal topics, career paths, and career-ready skills, with a faculty including speakers from private practice, in-house, government, and academia. Our faculty members represented Cooley, Fried Frank, Reed Smith, Weil, Davis Woolfe, Macfarlanes, Dechert, Gowling WLG, Winterfeldt IP Group, Mayer Brown, Addleshaw Goddard, Government Legal Department, House of Lords, House of Commons, FCA, BPP University Law School, the Law Society, the SRA, Stonewall, Google, NBCUniversal, Netflix, Expedia, Spotify, Telefonica O2, Just Eat, Inmarsat, Citi, Adecco, T. Rowe Price, Visa, Bank of America, NatWest, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and others.
