Belfast Programmes

Belfast Summer Intern Programme


Arthur Cox runs a two week paid summer intern programme in our Belfast Office, this year running from 5 to 16 August 2019.

Who can apply?

Applications are open primarily to undergraduates or Masters students who are in their second year, or pre-final year of studying Law, or a Law-combination degree (e.g. Law and Spanish, Law and Politics), we may also consider applications from students in other years of study, or those post-graduation.

What will I be doing?

The purpose of the programme is to give you a real sense of what it is like to work as a trainee and ultimately as a solicitor in a leading commercial law firm.

As an intern you will be introduced to the work of the firm and will work as an involved member of the team on projects, cases and deals. You will be challenged. Our trainees, associates and partners will give you the support you need to accomplish tasks. You will also receive mentoring to help you make decisions about your future career.

How to apply?

Applications open on 21 January 2019 and interested candidates should submit a CV and short cover letter (no longer than one page) setting out why they want to apply by submitting applications by post to Rosemary Lundy, Arthur Cox, Victoria House, Gloucester St, Belfast, BT1 4LS, or by email to


From the applications we receive, our Trainee Committee will make a selection of the successful candidates (without interview) after the closing date of 29 March 2019. Offers will be made shortly after that date.

Participation in an intern programme is not a criterion for selection for our trainee programme.
