Legal Clerkship

Your training is close to our hearts. During your legal and/or elective traineeship, our lawyers will accompany you in your daily work and actively support you in your client work. You will receive extensive support through our mentoring programme. In order to prepare you for your exams in the best possible way, we offer you support in the form of exam courses from Kaiserseminare. In addition, a selected range of training courses from the Bird & Bird Academy is available to you to improve your legal and personal skills.

Would you like to complete your elective station abroad? Contact us before or during your traineeship at Bird & Bird.

What should you bring with you for your traineeship? You should have completed your school career with very good A-levels and have an above average first state examination. As our client structure is international, you should have a very good command of English, which you should ideally have been able to improve during a stay abroad. Above all, you are open-minded and curious to learn new things and bring a great interest in the practice area.

When is the best time to apply? We recommend that you apply at least three to six months in advance.
