Trainee solicitors looking to spend a stint working abroad have been given an opportunity by The Law Society to spend six months on secondment in its Brussels office.
The secondment programme, now in its twelfth year, will enable trainees to gain direct experience of working with EU institutions, and the possibility to participate in the legislative and political process.
The trainee’s tasks will include preparing and writing European Court of Justice case reports as well as drafting legislative updates highlighting developments in the corporate client and private client areas.
Applications are now being accepted and the secondments will start in September and March. Trainees interested in applying for placements must obtain permission from their law firm.
The deadline for applications is 15 May.
Meanwhile, human rights organisation JUSTICE has opened applications for its summer internship programme for three law graduates or those who have completed a conversion course.
Would-be lawyers who take part in the programme, which runs between June and September, can expect to be working on legal policy in the areas of criminal justice, human rights or EU home affairs.
