FOR two weeks during the winter holidays this July, ten Law students participated in the Phatshoane Henney Attorneys Winter Vacation Internship Programme in Bloemfontein.

This exclusive internship programme provides some of the country’s best Law students with a taste of what a legal career really entails and offers a valuable introduction and insight to these interns regar-ding the practice of law.

During the programme, candidates were exposed to all facets of a full-service law firm, ranging from criminal matters to property transfers to tax and estate planning. This enabled the interns to assess possible areas of interest and gauge what these disciplines required from a prospective lawyer, helping them to better prepare for their future career in law.

Linki Scholtz, third-year Law student at the University of the Free State (UFS), remarked that this internship was something every legal student should aspire to attend. “This very professio-nal and practical programme changes your mindset about every single area of law.”

Eldon Ward, another third-year of the UFS, also described it as “a brilliant, fantastic programme that exceeded my expectations”.

The two weeks consisted of several field trips to legal institutions such as the Supreme Court of Appeal, the Free State High Court and the Magistrate’s Court, CCMA, Liquor Board and Deeds Office, as well as highly informative practical sessions on, among many others, legal drafting and writing, criminal law, commercial and litigation consulta­tion, mediation, labour law, wills and estate planning and property law and processes.

Lindokuhle Ntuli, Law student of the UFS, added: “It was amazing. After a tough semester I had to think twice when choosing between the winter holiday and the internship, but I do not regret opting for the internship.”
