Maritime and Transportation Law

Maritime and Transportation Law Trainee Program

Montgomery McCracken continues to sponsor an intern program for foreign lawyers and law graduates. The firm’s maritime and transportation trainee program has afforded more than 110 foreign lawyers (and a few P&I Club claims handlers) an opportunity to observe firsthand the practices of maritime and transportation law in the United States. The program is designed to allow graduate law students or attorneys from outside of the United States to be involved in maritime and transportation cases, including, when possible, the attendance at court hearings, trials, arbitrations, depositions and settlement conferences, while receiving informal instruction on American law and procedure, as well as an opportunity to improve their English language skills.

Interested candidates should send an email with the subject: “[Your Name] – MMWR Trainee Program” to Vincent DeOrchis or Kaspar Kielland. Applicants should include their résumé and indicate the time period in which they are interested in participating in the three-month program.
