What is Beyond the Bar?
Beyond the Bar is a structured non-law internship programme specially designed for law students who – with the versatility of a law degree – would like to explore possible career options other than private practice. The internship programme will allow participants to work in a variety of non-legal setting, from consulting to aviation or even making policies. We believe that in an increasingly competitive market, diversity is strength.
Why Join Beyond the Bar?
Beyond the Bar (BtB) is the first structured non-law internship programme specially designed for law students. We believe that diversity is strength and that university is the best time to explore different career options to widen your exposure. Thus, BtB presents the best opportunity to participate in a series of exciting side events hosted by our prominent partners during the internship period. It also acts as a platform to apply your transferable skills and demonstrate the values of law students in various professions. You will be able to experience different corporate work culture, have a foretaste of what is it like working in a non-legal environment and be able to help to make an informed choice as to your potential career pathway and place of work.
In essence, BtB creates a space to form a support community, where interns share their experiences with each other for a diversified exposure. This programme is also your chance to secure a training contract as certain firms see BtB as the opportunity to train and identify students for future hiring!
