PAZ HOROWITZ is proud to be the Ecuadorian sponsor of the American Bar Association’s International Summer Internship Program.
The purpose of the program is to provide foreign law students with an opportunity to acquire practical experience and learn about the practice of law in Latin America. Our interns work closely with the firm’s lawyers and Ecuadorian law clerks to gain an understanding of Ecuador’s laws and legal system.
Interns support our attorneys in assigned cases and are expected to draft documents, carry out legal research, prepare correspondence, and write legal memoranda and articles. Our interns are also required to get on-the-job training carrying out various legal procedures and formalities at different public offices.
Internships are unpaid and applicants must be fluent in the Spanish language.
"My summer at Paz Horowitz last summer placed me at an advantage over my fellow summer associates.... Others may be better adept at navigating the inner workings of a big firm... but I feel like my experience at Paz Horowitz better prepared me for the responsibilities of being a summer associate in New York".
Erin L. Fogarty, New York Law School student
2007 Summer Associate at PAZ HOROWITZ
2008 Summer Associate at PROSKAUER ROSE
"I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience this summer. I have so many interesting stories to share with my classmates now that school is back in session. I also wanted to share the news that I made the international law journal here at Iowa. We are just finishing On Campus Interviewing, and many recruiters have said that my experience with your firm sets me apart. - (August 2008)".
