"I can’t speak more highly of my internship at MyVisa Lawyers. While there were many reasons why this internship was successful, I enjoyed the fact that this job involved real people and real stories. Not only did I learn about the law, but the business of law. What made the internship fun was the camaraderie among the interns and the helpfulness of the practitioners. Nilesh really gave us a sense of what it is like to work in a fast-paced legal environment, and we did it all online. This internship is a lot of work but a lot of fun." (NM, Summer Program 2021)

"MyVisa Lawyers has provided an excellent platform for me to learn new and innovative techniques to communicate with clients and manage client matters. The team has been extremely supportive and allowed PLT members to adjust and accommodate the virtual ways of the firm. As we're frequently confronted with interpreting important legislative instruments, the firm provided me with an excellent opportunity to improve my legal research skills. Most of all, it was extremely fun working with colleagues from different cultures which enhanced my experience at the firm."  (AR, Summer Program 2021)
