As a team, students obtain work from lawyers and are encouraged to seek out work in areas of interest. Student work is overseen by the lawyers directly. Each student is also assigned a senior mentor and a junior mentor who are available to answer questions and assist the student to integrate into the firm. Siskinds will also host appropriate activities during the summer program to help integrate the students into the firm.
Siskinds’ summer law student program runs from the end of May to mid-August (12 weeks). The London office will traditionally hire 6 to 10 summer students. Our 2022 London summer student positions have been filled.
