Following comments are from our former Trainees:

"It was great to work in an international and welcoming atmosphere without being placed on any one particular practise group. Hence the assignments I completed on a daily basis were very diverse, which kept things interesting."

"The topmost impression of my traineeship is the relaxed atmosphere. I have probably never laughed as much as I did – thanks to my colleagues with whom we handled even the tightest schedules with humour. In addition to being an internationally recognised law firm, Bird & Bird is also a fun place to work where every 'birdie's' effort is valued."

"During my Trainee period in Bird & Bird I had a chance to get acquainted with different legal fields and perform variable work assignments, such as research, translations and document drafting. I consider the best situations in my Trainee period to be the ones where I felt like part of the team and got to use customer-oriented, creative thinking. I am leaving the BB house with positive mind and with lots of great experiences."
