Lawfields Internship Programme
In line with our commitment to develop young talent, Lawfields offers internship opportunities for students studying law and other relevant disciplines. Our internship programme is designed to help shape the careers of future leaders.
Our internships span a period of two to three months at a time. Our interns are carefully selected and are offered an environment of discipline, innovation, and a commitment to excellence within which to learn. Interns are exposed to basic office and administrative procedures, research, client care, and practicalities of team work. Our interns get to visit the courts and key public registries such as the Companies Registry and Land Registries, among others.
Comments from Lawfields 2008 Summer Interns
1. “Generally speaking, my internship at Lawfields has been profoundly fruitful and profusely rewarding as I have been exposed to aspects of legal work which are not taught at school. For instance, the practical intricacies involved in registering a company, filing resolutions, conducting a search at the Register General’s Department, and filing a search at the High Court.In addition, I had the benefit of perusing certain documents, although I did not work on them, such as a shareholders’ agreement, and a loan agreement, just to mention a few.
The cordial and warm environment at Lawfields created by the Lawfields family and their professionalism made my stay at Lawfields very enjoyable.”
Mr. Kwesi Coleman, Final Year Professional Law Student, Ghana School of Law
2. “My experience at Lawfields has not only been educative but fun. The people are very nice and they made me feel at home right from the beginning. I did not feel left out but was rather involved in everything going on around me. Everyone has the ability to work in a team and this has resulted in work being done effectively and efficiently. I would like to come back next time if I am given the opportunity and look forward to being part of the team again.”
Ms. Seli Dotse, 2nd Year Law Student, Faculty of Law, University of Ghana, Legon
3. “It was a very lovely experience and I learnt a whole lot of things I probably wouldn’t learn in school. I want to thank you very much first of all for taking me on as an intern, secondly for giving me the chance to be taught and exposed to so much. I really appreciate it. I can now say that I understand the law
better. Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity. I hope and pray that I can work for Lawfields again in the future”
Ms. Emmanuella Coch, Final Year Law Student, Faculty of Law, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology, Kumasi, Ghana
4. “It was so much fun working at Lawfields. Most importantly, I got the opportunity to work with a formidable, hardworking and diligent team. My time with Lawfields would forever be remembered and appreciated. I sincerely doubt I could have learnt more elsewhere. And in as much as my internship was intriguing every mile of the way I am convinced that the benefits were mutual for both Lawfields and myself. I am certain I’ll be envied when I tell my friends about my experience at Lawfields.”
Mr. Kennedy Anaba, First Year Professional Law Student, Ghana School of Law
