At Kakar Advocates, we are always looking for high-quality members for our team. If you have the skills and desire to make a contribution to our team, please send us a copy of your CV, a cover letter explaining why you would like to join us, and what you can bring to our practice.
Our internship program offers a select number of university students (and university graduates) the opportunity to gain exposure to a thriving law practice.
In order to sharpen your legal skills, you will work alongside reputable and talented lawyers and experience an inclusive culture that encourages contribution and helps you to start fulfilling your potential. You will be assigned to help handle a variety of client cases.
"Work experience cannot be taught at law school.
Effective lawyers are built, not born."
The internship will focus on the concept of ‘training by doing’, as we believe that a hands-on approach can only give long term benefit to the intern.
Starting as an Intern and then promoting to Paralegal, the two years of employment at Kakar Advocates laid a strong foundation for my legal career. My journey at Kakar Advocates was no less than the “Suits” series. I had a Harvey Specter, Thomas Kraemer, who taught me how to think like a “real” lawyer. At Kakar Advocates, I gained extensive knowledge of law and realized the strength of team work. Grateful for the experience and highly recommended law firm to jump-start your career in law.

Besides learning law in theory at the American University of Afghanistan, my time at Kakar Advocates challenged me to experience and understand the importance of law from a practical perspective. It exposed me to how law, rule of law and critical thinking works in real life - especially in Afghan courts. As a sophomore student of law at the time and as a an intern of Kakar Advocates, I still remember and apply the lessons learnt to my life. Kakar Advocates never missed to seize the opportunity of impressing its employees and similarly of its interns.
