The scope of the internship basically involved a major project with other side-projects on the side. My major project was to structure, plan, formulate, test, and then run, an online course about Human Rights in ASEAN as part of LexisNexis' Rule of Law projects (#LN4ROL). Practically nothing was given to be from the beginning. I was asked to come out with my own concept and to do everything on my own. That involved lots of research and brain-storming. My minor projects, at least those which I can disclose, involved other things which my boss required me to research for her. There was also another course, Law 101, which I was tasked to present to the employees of LexisNexis Malaysia as well as employees in other offices in Asia via video conference. Although LexisNexis is formally a law publishing company, the majority of its employees are not legally trained. I was thus tasked to give them a short crash course on how law works, indirectly helping them add value to their daily work.What did you learn?
-Was your supervisor supportive?
My mentor/boss took a point to really engage me and made sure I gained as much as I could from my time there. She also made sure that LexisNexis gained as much as they could from me in my short period there: I was put to good use. She would take me out for coffee and give me these inspiring talks, encouraging me to think big and to be ambitious in every task I'm given, to give my 101%. She shared her experiences as a corporate leader and often times she came across as very much of a human rights activist herself. I can safely say that I learnt more from my mentor than the job itself, although the job itself challenged me very extensively in every sense. But it was her encouragement and inspiration that took me through the challenging tasks.What could be improved? What could you have done better?
-Advice for future interns?
Any pre-U or university student wanting to gain an insight into working in a corporate environment and running Corporate Social Responsibility projects. Also, perhaps law students. This is an American law publishing multinational corporate company familiar to most, if not all, law readers. Having a legal background and interning here, law students would be very much exposed to life in the corporate field and the challenges involved. It is very different from the legal "bubble". Recommended for all students searching for more than a paper-pushing internship and a rather challenging one while at that.
