Graduate Programme

Propelling Your Legal Career

Summer Intern Programme

Choosing our intern programme is a step in the right direction for your long term career prospects. A notable aspect of our Summer Intern Programme is the number of interns in each intake. This is because we are focused on finding future trainees and ultimately, future lawyers for our firm. Since we began the Summer Intern Programme, we have offered training contracts to the majority of our interns.

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 four week paid internship 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 approximately 90% of trainees as qualified solicitors once they complete their training contracts.

Benefits for you

As an intern, you will:

  • Interact with lawyers at all levels both professionally and socially
  • Contribute to high-profile cases
  • Gain an insight into the daily life of trainees, associates and partners
  • Receive exceptional on the job training
  • Learn valuable organisational and communications skills
  • Gain access to our gym, subsidised restaurant and Sports & Social  activities including an intern team bonding event and summer BBQ

If you are offered a traineeship following your internship, we will pay your Law Society fees and a competitive salary while you are at Blackhall Place.
