In what areas and offices is it possible to do internships for undergraduate degrees and masters for access to the practice of law?
We have internship programs at all our offices and we will assign you to a practice area or specialty. We will advise you on the area of assignment based on your profile and interests, as well as on the availability of positions and the needs of the teams.
Is there rotation by area?
The internships for undergraduate degrees and masters for access to the practice of law are carried out in one practice area. For your integration, it is important that you make the most of this experience and learn all about the practice area and the specialty in great detail.
However, if you complete more than one internship, you can do the internships in different groups and practice areas to learn more about the firm e.g., you could do the internship for the third year of the undergraduate degree in the Corporate and Commercial Practice and the internship of a master for admission to the practice of law in the Tax Practice. When you join the firm later, we will assign you to a specialty area, so you can develop your career.
