Typical roles for a law internship in Colombia

Here are a few examples of roles that our law interns in Medellín have taken on before:

  • Solicitor

    A solicitor is a general term encompassing all those with a professional qualification who are licensed to practice law. All interns wishing to practice as a solicitor must complete the exams set by the Law Society at Blackhall Place in Dublin. Solicitors offer legal advice in one or more specialized areas of law.

  • Tax Consultant

    Tax Consultants are advisors to clients on matters of business, including mergers and acquisitions, demergers, and tax planning structures. Interns will gain hands-on experience in tax consultancy which combines the skill sets of accounting and law, often found in both industries.

    A barrister is also known as a counsel – an area of legal practice involving court advocacy and representation. Shadowing a barrister may see one undertake the responsibilities of a barrister including the provision of legal opinions and advice for clients, writing legal documents for cases, and representing clients in court or out-of-court settlements.
