Nine law students selected for internship with Citibank and Rajah & Tann

SINGAPORE - Nine law students from the National University of Singapore have been selected from a pool of 80 applications for a three-month internship programme designed to expose students to the variety of possibilities available in a law career.

The internship was launched by Citibank in partnership with the NUS law faculty and law firm Rajah and Tann.

Interns, mostly third and fourth year undergraduate law students, will be attached to a senior counsel and get exposure to the working of the business area of Citibank, such as its Markets & Securities services department, or its Fixed Income & Derivatives department.

All interns will be guaranteed an interview opportunity with Rajan and Tann, and the best among them will be awarded a training contract with the reputed law firm.

A total of up to ten law students will be accepted into Citi's legal internship programme each year. The next intake of the legal internship programme will commence in early 2016 and the call for application will begin end 2015.
