I interned with CLM on a part time basis during the summer of 2019 while I was studying for my FE1 examinations. As well as giving me real life experience of the day to day work of a solicitor, I was able to help conduct research for CLM's policy reform initiatives. I would really recommend interning with CLM , especially if you are considering a career in public interest law. You get given the opportunity to contribute to their work in a meaningful way, which gives you invaluable practical experience. The staff there are so welcoming and create a really great work environment. They were so flexible and understanding with the various commitments I I had on during my time there, and really did everything they could to make sure my experience with them was as fulfilling as possible.
