Interns usually work in one or two different practice groups, depending on the length of the internship. You’ll be allocated a supervisor in each of your practice groups, and you’ll work closely with the partners, managing associates and associates in that team. It’s a hands-on role, so you’ll not just be watching from the sidelines. You’ll be actively involved in conference calls, meetings, client visits and the deals or matters the team is working on.
