Application for an Internship

The Singapore Legal Service offers internships to law undergraduates and JD students studying for a recognised law degree - as stipulated under the Legal Profession Act (Qualified Persons Rules) - at the NUS, the SMU, the SUSS or a Scheduled University. 

2       The internships are offered twice annually and have been designed to coincide with the vacation periods of major law schools/institutions in each academic year: May to Sep; and Dec to the following Feb.

3       All applicants would need to complete an “Internship Application Form” (please click here for the said form).  All applicants are requested to kindly review the “Guidance Notes” (set out in the said form) before completing and submitting an application.  All applicants are also requested to clearly indicate the internship cycle(s) they are applying for.

4     We shall appreciate it if applicants would please kindly note the following in connection with data protection:

           (a) all applications would need to be completed and submitted within three weeks (this is in
           view that any "saved" drafts that are not "submitted" within three weeks from the date that the
           application is "started" in the system would be "automatically purged" and a fresh/new
           application would be required); and

           (b) all applications that are received would, within two weeks from submission by the
           applicant, be "automatically purged".

5     Please note that the current framework is that all interns are eligible for a monthly “internship allowance”.  The quantum of the said monthly “internship allowance” will be pro-rated - based on the number of actual working hours in the month that the intern undertook the internship. 

6        All queries may be directed to the Internship Manager of the Singapore Legal Service (currently Ms Dimple Chulani) at
