Not just a dream coming true. A fun way to seriously kick-start your career.
Registrations for the 2019 program are open! Partner for a Day is your opportunity to gain insights into the work of a lawyer. You will get two days of legal training with workshops and cases in e.g. contract drafting and negotiation techniques. And you can have lunch with a partner of your own choice to talk about your dreams and career path. It is your opportunity to network in an international law firm with over 1,200 lawyers in 30 offices across Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
Partner for a Day will be held on 31 October - 1 November 2019 at Bird & Bird, Sundkrogsgade 21, 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark.
"I loved the fact that we were only 6 students, as we got way more individual time with the employees of Bird & Bird than you get at other events. Apply for this event if you want to see how it is to work at real international law firm." - Casper Nalepa Jensen, participant in 2018 "
"You get the chance to negotiate a deal for a (fictive) client and you also get practical training in contract drafting. You learn about areas in the work as a lawyer, which you don't do in the books or at the university. Partner for a Day has only made me even more motivated in my studies. The event also includes a great opportunity to network with both the associates at Bird & Bird (who are very open to talk) and the other participants." - Sebastian Juhl, participant in 2018
“An unforgettable event that only reinforced my interest in working at a law firm and not least Bird & Bird as a work place. I got insights on things you do not usually deal with as a law student, e.g. what characterises a good lawyer and small details to be aware of when negotiating with others.” - Martin Jørgensen, participant in 2017.
