London Internship Program

The Williams School coordinates Washington and Lee's eight-week program that combines classroom study and internships with firms in and around London. Students are matched with businesses and not-for-profits based upon their professional interests.

In addition to the internship and classes, students have opportunities to network with Washington and Lee alumni who work in several industries.
