KPUM proudly presents 30 Days of Summer —an internship programme designed to help law students gain work experience in Malaysia by providing a platform for KPUM members to secure internships in Malaysia. It is hoped that, through these programme, students will get to explore potential career pathways and build meaningful relationships.
30 Days of Summer Internship Programme
This programme features two month-long internships with two law firms, allowing students to gain insights into different law firms and their respective practice areas. It is a great opportunity for law students to understand the cultures of law firms and to expand their CVs.
*Confirmed participating firms as of 16/06/2020 are:
Chiong & Partners
Izad Kazran & Co
Kee Sern, Siu & Huey
Messrs Choo Dee Wei
Shearn Delamore (Virtual)
Steven Thiru & Sudhar Partnership
Zain & CO
Zul Rafique & Partners
How to apply
To apply, complete the application form and submit it along with an updated CV. Please save the application link in case you wish to make future amendments such as changing your preference order of firms.
All applications will undergo a basic screening done by KPUM followed by a thorough assessment from the participating law firms. While KPUM strives to allocate firms according to the applicants’ preferences (and vice versa), we regret that this unfortunately cannot be guaranteed.
While applicants are allowed to apply to both programmes (30 Days of Summer and Beyond the Bar), please note that most participating organisations require a two-month commitment from their interns. This would therefore prevent members from participating in both internship programmes should there be a clash of dates.
Participants should acknowledge that failure to honour their commitments to this internship without providing an adequate reason may lead to them being blacklisted from any and all future KPUM internships, events, and initiatives.
The programme is open to all Malaysian law students.
There will also be a series of side events held throughout the duration of the internship programmes. These events aim to help KPUM members gain soft skills for their future careers so stay tuned for future announcements.
