Monash Professional-ANU ANIP


acav

Hello,

i am an italian law student,currently enrolled in 3rd year of a 5 year course.I knew of the Internship possibilities with Monash Professional at a job fair in my university.I tried to find more information on this program but i just found the australian universities rankings.I saw the Australian National University organizes an internship program,the ANIP,Australian National Internship Program.
According to the rankings ANU is better than Monash but the Monash Program fits more my needs.
Does any of you have any experience or advices on Monash University or Monash Professional?

Hi acav,

I am not really able to assist with your specific query pertaining to Monash Professional the ANU's ANIP but I am hoping that some general information I am able to provide will be useful to you.

In particular, you are right that ANU has a better ranking than Monash. Could I also ask why are you going through these institutions to obtain an internship? In particular, would it be because a placement through these institutions would entitle you for credit towards your law degree back in Italy as some sort of 'clinical legal education'? If this is not the rationale, perhaps you could arrange your own internship as it is relatively easy to do so. Furthermore, if i am not wrong, Monash Professional imposes a charge for arranging an internship too?

I hope this is post is at least slightly useful to you. I am sorry if it isn't!


Cheers

Hi Greg,first thanks for answering!
Actually I wouldn't do an Internship with Monash as this would give me credits in Italy.I thought it could be easier to find an Internship with them.In fact,I really have no idea of companies I could apply to for an internship in Australia and I doubt they would take an italian law student at the third year of a 5-year law course.Do you have any suggestion on companies where I could apply for a position in Australia or New Zealand?
Thanks,
greets,Andrea

Hi Andrea

I think it is generally easy to find an internship in Australia even though you are only 3rd year (out of 5). I would think the hard ones would be to find an internship with a top-tier firm in Australia but I suspect that Monash and/or ANUIP would be able to assist you with that.

Do you have in mind a particular area of law that you want to practise? Also, do you expect firms/companies to pay you for the internship period (also, the airfare etc etc). If your expectation in relation to the monetary returns of completing an internship is relatively low then I think you would easily be able to find something which suits you.

Also, have you ever considered doing an exchange program with an Australian University? In your 6 mths to a year at the Australian University, you could always enrol in a course which gives credit based on your internship/placement. :)

Let me know more information and I will see how i can help!

Cheers

I would like to practise in Business Law,particularly M&A.
I honestly don't have any expectation in term of salary.Obviously a minimum wage and some fringe benefits(airfare-accomodation)would be a plus but they wouldn't be decisive.My main problem is the limited availability of time:I would be able to be in Australia from early October to early January.I would have to stay in Italy till the end of February to sustain my law exams.Therefore I could go back to Australia in early March.
I considered doing an exchange but my university hasn't any agreement with australian universities.What is more I have already partecipated to the European Erasmus Program in Sweden.
Still,If there is the possibility to attend an australian university and do an internship in the meanwhile,this would be the best solution!

Hi Andrea!

I dont know how can i help you but just do a google search on mid tier law firms in Sydney and Melbourne. These cities are where most law firms are located and I am sure you will be able to look for something if you aren't too picky with your salary etc.

At the top of my head I can't really think of any good website where you can view relevant information but will post it once i remember it!

In the meantime, I wish you all the best!! I think you should resort to seeking help from Monash and ANU only if you are really desperate because I understand that there are considerable amount of fees involved!
