There is close coordination between the Attorneys and the Externs. Ikigai Law Attorneys perform the role of mentors and role models for the Externs. This also helps in grooming Attorneys in the methodology of training and development. By assigning an Attorney as a guide for each Intern we aim to create Mentor & Peer relationships for Interns with Partners and Associates, respectively.

About the Internship
We have a structured Externship Programme detailing the roles and responsibilities of Externs, deliverables and timelines which we expect our Externs to adhere to. Scope of work for the Externs ranges from basic legal research, preparing case notes, drafting research memoranda, case briefs and to assist attorneys in case preparation and transactions.
This provides exposure to different areas of law and a variety of legal issues. It provides an opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge and gain practical experience while developing team working skills. It provides intrinsic learning to hone and develop softer skills including cognitive skills, internal and external relationship management skills. Holistic personality development is essential for a future day successful lawyer.
