For the past two weeks, I’ve been working at Bhole IP Law, a law firm in downtown Toronto that focuses on intellectual property. I was really excited to begin working here, since I am interested in law so doing an internship through SHAD was a really good opportunity to explore the reality of the career. My role here allows me to see first hand how a modern law firm functions, and how effective marketing can help a business thrive.
As SHAD interns, we are given more responsibility and freedom than a typical intern, but still carry out the usual tasks (ie. filing, running errands). In fact, we were both given initiatives to work on over the process of the month. For example, I have been working with the lawyers on new marketing initiatives, while another SHAD intern is working on streamlining the client intake process using customer relations management (CRM) software. Through the research I conduct as a part of my work, I’ve been able to learn how the world of law is changing, and develop an insight into what the industry of law might look like in the future.
Bhole IP Law will be at the CNE from Friday the 18th to Sunday the 20th in the innovation garage, so stop by if you’re interested in learning more about the firm, intellectual property, or just want to talk about SHAD!
