A program run by Osgoode Hall and the Schulich School of Business at York is giving six law students business law internships.

The Hennick Centre business law internships offer the students an opportunity to work on the client side in a business law environment while earning $10,000 for their summer employment. The funding for five of the six internships is coming from McCarthy Tétrault LLP. Five internships are available for juris doctor students and one for a juris doctor/masters of business administration student.

The 2018 recipients are: Madison Black, who will be interning at Mount Sinai Hospital; Arjin Choi, who will be at the Ontario Securities Commission; Aleeza Freedman, who will work at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health; Rishi Nageshar, who will be at the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Ontario; Ronen Nehmad, who will be in Washington, D.C., at the World Bank Group; and Jorgen Wong, who will intern at FirstService Residential Ontario.

“We are deeply grateful to McCarthy Tétrault for its generous support for five of the business law internships and these six organizations for creating an excellent opportunity for our students to enhance their education in business and law by working alongside their professional teams,” said professor Edward J. Waitzer, director of the Hennick Centre for Business and Law.

“Our students will work under the active supervision of their legal staff and will assist with business law or commercial law-related assignments and tasks. These internships will provide the students with amazing mentorship opportunities.”
