INTERNSHIPS

More than just befriending the binding machine.

Get a glimpse of what life is like as a member of BlackOak, before you take the plunge. We don't have any special, pre-planned attachment programmes; our interns get to assist on real cases and see us for who we truly are - lawyers who love what they do and who are pretty darn good at it.

We are also proud to be able to say that most of our lawyers began their careers with the team as interns.
