CHILE / ARGENTINA SUMMER LAW PROGRAM
Externships / Internships
Although the Program does not include internships, we are very happy to assist students with finding employment / internships in Chile and Argentina. We have a new relationship with a consortium of the top law firms and NGOs in Chile and throughout Latin America. With this new linkage, we are able to offer our students increased access to some of the top firms in Santiago - not only in the classroom but site visits and informal gatherings.
These firms are also very interested in having interns from the program spend July, and possibly in to August, in residence, gaining substantive experience under the supervision of experienced international atorneys. We cannot of course promise a placement, as this will be between the student and the firm or organization, but will provide interested students with advice and connections to the firms. It remains the students’ responsibility to secure the internship in Chile or Argentina.
In the past, students interned for KPMG; Grasty, Quintana, Majlis Abogados; Pro Acceso (NGO); the Chilean Foreign Investment Committee; Bancoestado; the Human Rights Unit of the Chilean Department of Foreign Relations, just to name a few. Through the faculty who teach the class sessions, WCL alumni, and other friends of the Program, there are always internship possibilities.
