Matheson announces partnership for virtual summer internship programme
Matheson has announced a new partnership with online platform provider InsiderSherpa to deliver its virtual summer internship programme.
The firm is one of a number of Irish law firms that have developed a virtual programme for summer interns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions.
The programme aims to replicate an on-site internship experience through webinars, training sessions, virtual assignments and project work, with each task and instruction delivered by the firm’s legal professionals.
Interns will be assigned a “trainee buddy” for their two-week internship, as well as getting to participate in workshops with Matheson’s managing partner, partners and heads of business services.
Nicola White, learning and development director at Matheson, said: “Innovation is a core value here at Matheson and we are proud to be at the forefront of such an exciting and unique method of learning.
“The programme enables Matheson to continue its commitment to providing the opportunities and training students require to pursue a career in law, despite the current uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 crisis.”
