    Hi all, just looking for some advice.

    I'm starting university in September but trying to think ahead in terms of employment opportunities. I'd love to do an internship/placement overseas preferably law related (if possible?) which I would obviously fund myself. Has anyone done this or have any advice on how I would go about doing it?

    Thanks in advance :-)

    A lot of law firms will advertise international internships on their websites. I'm starting one in a couple of months in the Far East and I just sent them a CV and cover letter. Just find a country you'd like to go to, look up their law firms and browse the websites. That should also tell you whether, as a pre-university student, you are eligible for such schemes.
