Internships, Paris office

We are accepting applications for internships of six months, commencing in the period between April to July 2018.

We welcome applications from outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate students in law, as well as those who have recently graduated. English is the only language of which mastery is a pre-requisite, although fluency in other languages, especially Arabic, French, German, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish, would be an advantage.

An internship in the Freshfields arbitration group would expose you to a wide-range of cross-border work, including some of the most complex, challenging and interesting international disputes currently subject to arbitration.

Internships are our preferred method of recruiting junior associates. More than half of our associates started with us as interns.

To apply, please address a letter of application and a curriculum vitae that includes a summary of your university results, neither exceeding one page in length, to the Paris Arbitration Trainee Selection Committee, before 15 September 2017
