My 8-week Internship at B & P ASSOCIATES

“It has been an exciting and intensive eight-week internship and I cannot overemphasize how important this period has been for me. The disparity between what I learnt in school and what actually occurs in legal practice has been a true eye-opener.


This internship has indeed been a great learning experience for me. I had the rare privilege of understudying brilliant seniors who tutored and mentored me throughout the period. The wealth of knowledge I have garnered within this relatively short period has been impactful and I strongly believe this will prove useful as I begin my legal career. I am particularly happy about the way I was warmly received and it is difficult saying goodbye to a place I called home over the past eight weeks.


I am extremely grateful to the Managing Partner of B&P Associates and the Ghana School of Law for this opportunity.”
