When you're on the home stretch in your studies and turning your gaze towards the challenges of working life, we can offer you the chance to get practical experience of the legal profession before deciding what you want to do after graduation.
As a senior trainee, your work would be equivalent to that of a freshly graduated lawyer in our firm. Senior trainees extensively assist our lawyers in their assignments. Your duties would include legal research, writing articles, translating documents, and contacting authorities. You are well suited to work as a senior trainee if you are solution-oriented and interested in client service, have good language and social skills and are flexible and ambitious with a genuine interest in business law.
This traineeship is full time and lasts for four months. Some trainees may continue with us even longer by working as a project trainee or a thesis trainee.
For further information, please contact Essi Järvinen.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN APPLYING
If you think that Castrén & Snellman could be right for you, fill out our trainee application form and tell us about yourself. We read every application we get and pick some of the applicants for interviews.
The first interview stage is via video. In the video interview, you film yourself answering a few questions that we will send you by e-mail. You will have 2–4 days to make your video.
We will invite about one-third of the people who participated in the video interviews to a face-to-face interview at our offices. At this stage, you will be interviewed by a member of our HR team and the person responsible for the trainee programme you’re applying to.
We will let all applicants know either over the phone or via e-mail when the new trainees have been selected.
