At JSA, we understand that our younger colleagues are often expected to quickly adapt to the high paced work environment in which we operate.
Our Internship Programme helps law students understand how we operate and equips them to the challenges after law school. It also provides a platform to the Interns to demonstrate their potential with the aim to bring out the best in the Interns by challenging them and helping them take the first few steps towards qualifying as lawyers.
