We will be accepting internship applications from 1 January 2020 to 19 January 2020.

Internships are a great opportunity for you to get to know us and dip your toe into the life of a practising lawyer. Our programme is designed to take you on a tour of the firm and provide a platform to participate in the culture that defines us Rajah & Tann. Interns can expect to work alongside our lawyers as they attend court proceedings and meetings, and assist in tasks such as research and the preparation of legal documents.

Our programme is also a means for us to get to know you and understand your perspectives and aspirations. If you are considering a permanent position with us, our lawyers are always on the lookout for aspirants who would make solid additions to our teams.

We hope to achieve a lot during your time with us and each placement will run for a period of four-weeks. This year, our internship programmes will be conducted:  

  • From 4 May to 29 May 2020;
  • From 6 July to 30 July 2020; and
  • From 3 August to 28 August 2020.

The practice of law is multi-faceted. That is why our firm has several teams, each with their own specialised skills and unique personalities. You may apply for a placement with any of the following practice groups:  


  • Commercial Dispute Resolution
    (includes the sub-practice groups of
    Commercial Litigation, Insurance, Appeals & Issues,
    and Fraud, Asset Recovery & Investigations)

We hope to meet as many applicants as we can. However, as spaces are limited, we will prioritise students who are in their second year and above, and who are able to commit to the full four-week programme.
