Traineeships at the Court of Justice of the European Union

Three unpaid traineeships of approximately 3 months will be available in the chambers of Judge Christopher Vajda at the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg from, respectively:

1) 6th September 2016 to 16th December 2016

2) 9th January 2017 to 7th April 2017

3) 24th April 2017 to 21st July 2017.


This is an opportunity to engage with EU law at the highest level and gain important experience of how it works in practice. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a knowledge of European Union law, have a reasonable command of French – the CJEU’s working language – and, by the time they take up a traineeship, either hold a law degree or have successfully completed a law conversion course.  Applications, consisting of a brief CV and a cover letter indicating preferred dates for a traineeship, should be sent by email to by March 18th 2016.
