Junior Trainees

If you see a cheerful person dashing down the halls of our office with a box in hand, it's probably one of our junior trainees.

If you are a law student in the early stages of your studies, we would like to offer you the opportunity to get to know the day-to-day routines of our firm. Our junior trainees assist our lawyers and business services in a wide variety of tasks—and usually save the day with their timely help.

As a junior trainee your work will be fast-paced and vary from day to day, and you’ll benefit from the ability to adapt quickly. Your day could start off couriering documents to authorities. The day might then continue by rushing the firm’s mail to the post office and then printing out and binding a book’s worth of documentation. You may also be asked to man the front desk or help our caterers set up a conference room for an important meeting. In addition to having the adaptability of a chameleon, you are well suited to work as a junior trainee if you are a good team player with a service-minded, positive attitude and a good sense of humour.

Junior trainees work part time during the academic year, usually 2 days a week. During the summer, the work is full time. This traineeship lasts for four months. Trainee periods start every January, May and September.

We will send all applicants a link to one video interview question. You will have at least 2 days to make you video.


We review every application and video we receive.

Depending on the trainee programme, we will invite some applicates either to a recruiting day or directly to an individual interview. The recruiting day involves group assignments and individual interviews. You will be interviewed by your potential new supervisor, a member of our HR team and sometimes another possible future colleague. We will let you know who will be interviewing you in the invitation to the interview.

If you are not invited to the recruiting day or interview, we will contact you by e-mail and give you the opportunity to receive feedback on your application over the phone.

We will let all applicants who participated in a recruiting day or interview know the results of the recruitment process either over the phone or via e-mail.
