The virtual programme allows students to gain first-hand insight into life as a White & Case lawyer by completing four practical tasks designed to develop their knowledge and experience.
The programme takes five to six hours to complete and is free and open to all undergraduates and graduates from any degree discipline. There is no application required to start the programme and the course is self-paced and practical tasks will not be assessed.
White & Case are seeking globally minded and ambitious individuals to join the virtual programme and no prior legal knowledge or work experience is required to register.
Those who complete the programme can ‘pre-enrol’ and be on the first invite list to exclusive events. The ‘virtual internship’ will also count as legal work experience if students go on to apply for a vacation scheme at the firm.
