Harris Kyriakides LLC establishes Cyprus law internship program in association with the University of Oxford

Harris Kyriakides LLC has reached an agreement with the University of Oxford that will allow the operation of a summer internship program to be offered to Oxford University law students interested to enhance their knowledge and expertise on the Cyprus legal system.

In establishing this program, Harris Kyriakides LLC has teamed up with the Internship Office of the University of Oxford, an excellent institution facilitating summer internships for students of the University of Oxford. These are offered globally by selected multi-national corporations, world-leading NGOs, cutting-edge research institutions and many other organizations and are exclusively available to Oxford University students. Since the program’s inception, Oxford University students have undertaken internships in over 30 countries.

The Cyprus law internship at Harris Kyriakides LLC shall operate in the course of the summer months of each year, with a duration ranging between 4 to 8 weeks.  It will be open to all current and matriculated (i.e. not visiting) Oxford University students (undergraduates and postgraduates), including those in their final year of study. The internships are advertised from the beginning of Hilary term and students may only apply via the Oxford University Internship Program.

The internship is ideal for enthusiastic and motivated law students, who seek to experience a professional environment of a Cyprus law firm and be introduced in the principles of Cyprus law that run through their field of choice or expertise.  It is intended that the intern will produce a final paper at the end of the internship, which may be submitted for publication in national and/or international journals. Candidates must be fluent in English and computer literate. Knowledge of the Greek language is not necessary.

The intern will be given free access to national and international legal databases and other resources that are useful to carry out his/her research. Harris Kyriakides LLC also offers a subsidy towards accommodation and living expenses, which is set from time to time by the Board of the firm.
