Global Counsel is recruiting the next cohort of graduate trainees to join the London, Brussels or Washington DC offices starting in August 2022. The roles are a great opportunity for anyone interested in getting hands-on experience in public policy and to learn about the world of strategic advisory. The successful candidates will have a strong interest in the interface of politics, policy making, and business.
Very friendly Midd firm. As an alum said: “We do really interesting work that would appeal to Middkids that have a deep interest in politics and policy (domestic or international). IPE, Poli Sci, Econ are typical backgrounds, but frankly we seek critical thinkers that write well and are fun to work with. We are very open to any degree as long as the candidate has a deep interest in politics and policy.”

FAQ for DC Trek applicants:
As you consider applying for this exciting opportunity, we’ve collected a few questions that might be on your mind to help you be informed as you decide whether to apply or not.
What if my internship starts right around that week of June 6 when this trip is happening?
We encourage you to discuss this with your supervisor. In some cases this could be an actual good thing to attend and then start your internship. A contact or supervisor at your internship might be more understanding than you think. Let us know if you want to discuss this more. We realize this could be an issue but hope it’s not a big obstacle.
Will you really pay for all expenses to get me to DC? Like air tickets, food and hotels too?
Yup! We know it can be expensive, and will work with you within reason to make this affordable because we think it’s worth it. We’ll include dinner Sunday night, then 3 meals on Monday and Tuesday, and breakfast and lunch on Wednesday before the program ends. We’ll work with you to make travel arrangements to arrive in DC on Sunday evening, then depart on Wednesday late afternoon. We’ll also cover subway fares or other local transport in DC. And you’ll have housing on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings.
What organizations will we be visiting?
Good question. We are building this trip as we speak. We have some places in mind now, and depending on who is selected for the trip, we may adapt and try new visits. The purpose is to show you a wide range of interesting organizations doing work in this area. We will probably be visiting 2-3 places per day, with a reflection activity in the evening to help you process all you are learning.
What happens after this trip?
We hope you make connections with alumni and learn about the variety of opportunities that exist. You can use this trip as a spring board to investigate internships for future summers or explore how it connects to future classes you want to take on campus. We anticipate you will return to your scheduled summer internship or job or go home after the program ends.
I’m not sure if this trip is right for me, why should I apply? What are you looking for in candidates?
If you’re curious, open minded and are ready to learn, this trip is for you. If you’ve always wanted to visit DC, or have been in the past and want to go again, this trip is for you. All majors are welcome. All class years are welcome. In fact, younger students like first years might be the best. If you think you know what conflict transformation is, join us. Better yet, if you’re still working it out, that’s fine too, we will discover and explore together.
