Our annual winter vacation internship programme provides students interested in legal careers with the opportunity to supplement their theoretical knowledge with practical experience and making them aware of the opportunities available within the legal profession. We are always alert to fresh legal talent and occasionally our interns go on to become candidate attorneys at GMI.

How our intern selection process works

We select two students for our three-week winter vacation legal internships. We select two students in their third year of study from the University of Pretoria and the University of Limpopo (Turfloop campus), to serve a three week internship programme. We give preference to previously disadvantaged students.

What you get during your internship

Chosen candidates for the vacation programme undergo an induction process similar to that presented to our first year candidate attorneys. Thereafter the students are placed with an attorney, where they experience what sophisticated commercial legal practice actually entails.

How to apply

Applications can be submitted online before 31 May of each year. Applications reached after this date will be considered for the following year. If you would like to apply for vacation work, please submit the following requirements:

  • Your full Curriculum Vitae
  • Your matric certificate
  • Your full academic transcript
  • A copy of your Identity Document

Please note:
