Linklaters launches global virtual internship

The internship is an extension of the firm’s existing virtual legal internship and is targeted at 16-18 year old students.

Linklaters has announced the launch of its first global Business Teams Virtual Internship Programme to broaden access to the firm’s Business Teams functions. 

The internship is an extension of the firm’s virtual legal internship and is targeted at 16-18 year old students. 

Linklaters said it aims to provide insight into the day-to-day workings of the key functions that comprise its Business Teams, and the wide range of career options available at the firm, alongside the legal career path. 

The new online programme consists of five modules, giving school students the opportunity to “virtually experience” working in one of the firm’s Business Teams functions: Marketing, Finance, Legal Operations, Technology and HR. 

Additionally, students will receive instructions, have access to resources to help with the tasks and submit work that reflects the day-to-day responsibilities of one of Linklaters’ Business Teams. 

The platform reportedly uses e-learning style technology to achieve this and provides model answers so students can self-mark their work. 

Matt Peers, Linklaters’ global chief operating officer, said: “Our Business Teams provide critical services to support our lawyers in delivering a best-in-class service to our clients. 

“To attract and develop future top talent in our Business Teams, we need to keep raising awareness of access to opportunities at our firm and ensure we’re accessing talent from a diverse range of backgrounds. Our Business Teams Virtual Internship looks to do just that.”
