Each semester, we are offering trainee solicitors from the UK a unique opportunity to undertake a six-month secondment in our office.
As a trainee in the office you will assist the Brussels team in monitoring EU legal developments that range from competition law to criminal justice, public procurement or private international law. Specific tasks will include preparing and writing the Brussels Agenda, drafting legislative updates for members and speaking at internal and external meetings. You will also attend European Parliament hearings and high level conferences offering the opportunity to develop contacts with MEPs, Commission officials and UK Government representatives.
We usually announce the upcoming opportunities on this page around end of April/May for the autumn semester and end of October/November for the spring semester. Trainees interested in applying will need to provide a letter from their firm or employer confirming that it will continue to pay their salary during the secondment.
If you require an information note or would like to discuss the secondment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
