Who should apply?

We welcome applications for our Summer Intern Programme from anyone that has completed at least two years of an undergraduate or graduate degree in any discipline.Postgraduate students or those who have completed their studies are also welcome to apply, including those who have work experience and have already completed FE-1s.

The three week* paid internship (this may be subject to change) is our primary means of recruiting future trainees, a method that we think benefits everyone, as the Summer Intern Programme gives us the opportunity to get to know you and see if you are the right fit for a traineeship with Mason Hayes & Curran LLP.

We retain over 90% of trainees as qualified solicitors once they complete their training contracts.

  • Interact with lawyers at all levels both professionally and socially
