The 2016 White & Case Moscow summer program

White & Case Moscow office will run a Summer Program this year from 1 July to 31 August 2016. The cornerstone of our graduate recruitment efforts, this Program is designed to give Russian law students insight into what it’s like to be a White & Case lawyer.

Summer interns are matched with an associate advisor who acts as mentor. Interns are involved in actual client projects like legal research, due diligence, preparation of legal documents, as well as in a variety of activities and social events. Interns have the opportunity to work for two practice areas to broaden their experience. This on-the-job practice also includes a comprehensive orientation, regular training sessions and seminars.

Just as students experience real work as a summer intern, they enjoy being part of our team. Summer interns take part in several social functions where they have the chance to build greater rapport with peers, mentors and colleagues.
