Dear Students,

Thank you for your continued interest in Baker McKenzie and for taking the time and effort in preparing required documents and applying for our 2020 Summer Internship Program. At this point, we must defer, for an unknown period of time, the Internship Program amid the COVID-19 situation in Ukraine.

Why do we defer the Summer Internship Program?

Each year, we take in at least ten interns for our Summer Internship Program. In addition to working on real assignments, the interns are offered various master classes and training sessions conducted by our Partners and Associates. Also, during the Internship Program we hold a number of informal events attended by many people. Hence, deferral of Summer Internship Program is a necessary safety measure under the circumstances. It is unknown at the moment how the COVID-19 situation will unfold, and as a measure for protecting from exposure risk we have decided to defer this Program until it is safe.

As soon as we understand that things get normal and Internship Program can be conducted, we will notify so on our website at, and on our official Facebook page

You have submitted application: what's next?

All applications submitted by you will be forwarded by HR to heads of practice groups of your choice indicated in your cover letters. Practice group heads and associates will consider each application and may offer internship outside the Program as planned. The intern selection process will include completion of tests and interview.

Is internship at Baker McKenzie available outside the Internship Program?

The answer is Yes.

Those of you who have not submitted application for Summer Internship Program, yet are interested in internship at Baker McKenzie in any specific practice group, may send the required documents (CV, cover letter indicating preferred area of practice, and information on academic performance) by email to As part of intern selection process, you will be asked to complete tests and will be invited to interview.

Why internship option is available?

You will not be in contact with too many colleagues during internship. If necessary, we can make arrangements for remote work.

Thank you for staying in contact!

Best regards,

Baker McKenzie team
