Legal Intern Guidelines and Regulations

The following Guidelines and Regulations apply to the Foreign Law Student Internship Program:

  • The Intern shall not be considered in any respect to be an official or staff member of the law firm Blenheim.
  • Blenheim accepts no responsibility for costs arising from accidents and (or) illness incurred during an Internship. Consequently, the Intern is responsible for securing adequate insurance coverage. The Intern will provide proof of enrolment in a health insurance plan.

  • The Intern shall undertake the following obligations with respect to the Internship program:
    • to observe all applicable rules, regulations and instructions of Blenheim

    • to keep confidential any and all unpublished information made known to the Intern by Blenheim during the course of the Internship, that the Intern knows or ought to have known has not been made public, and except with the explicit authorization of Blenheim, not to publish anything on the basis of information obtained during the Internship, both during and after the completion of the Internship
    • to provide Blenheim with a copy of all materials prepared during the Internship, and
    • to provide immediate written notice in case of illness or other circumstances which might prevent the Intern from completing the internship.

Nationals of a country within the European Union and nationals of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland and the United States of America do not require a visa to enter The Netherlands. The Intern shall be responsible for arranging travel to and from Amsterdam and housing in The Netherlands.
