In brief: Brussels placement up for grabs

Trainee solicitors are invited to spend five months in Brussels with the Law Society of England and Wales and the Law Society of Scotland. The trainee will gain insight into the workings of European institutions and the best way to lobby them, as well as learning how European laws are made and the way they affect solicitors and their clients. The placement starts in October, but applications must be received by 24 May. Phone Barbara McKelvey at the Law Society on 0171 320 5797 for an application form.
