We are delighted that Town Legal LLP, a law firm specialising in planning law, is once again partnering with BVL for two opportunities for our students:

2. A one-week internship for two students at their London office.
The in-person internship will take place on dates to be confirmed in August 2023. The internship aims to provide students with an insight into the work of Town Legal LLP lawyers, including:
a. Internal meetings
b. CV discussions
c. Engaging in drafting exercises
d. Attending a public inquiry
Students will be remunerated the apprentice salary, plus travel and lunch expenses.
Planning law is about how the land and sea around us is used and developed. It is the legal framework within which decisions are taken about how we arrange different uses and buildings to try to balance economic growth with our social needs and environmental protection. It affects everything from public transport, homes, parks, shopping centres in cities and towns to the countryside and the seabed around our national shores.
Town Legal LLP has worked for a wide range of clients including Stansted Airport, the Royal National Theatre, housebuilders, local councils, The Crown Estate, Battersea Power Station and London Hotel Group.
The only eligibility requirements we have are that you will be 16 years or over at the time of the project and that you are studying for your A-Levels (or equivalent) at a non-fee paying school in England or Wales. All of our projects are free of charge for all students.
To be eligible for the internship, you must first apply for and attend the insight evening.
