Following the success of its Summer Associate Program this year, Centurion Law Group has announced that it is welcoming applications for a second program in the summer of 2016 at the firm’s offices in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea. The deadline for applicants to be considered for the 12-week paid internship is October 31. Candidates must demonstrate strong legal writing and research skills, an interest in international law, strong interpersonal skills, and the ability to adapt to different working environments. Applicants with a command of professional level English and Spanish and general knowledge of corporate, tax, contract, energy and oil and gas activities are preferred.

They will assist the Centurion legal team in cases related to oil and gas, corporate, tax and energy law, international dispute resolution and other areas. Past participants of the program have been exposed to a wide range of activities, from multi-million dollar contract negotiations to commercial arbitration and litigation with international implications.

It’s an opportunity for lawyers to be treated as associates and make a meaningful contribution to the business and legal community.”
