Looking for a traineeship? Would you like to work in a truly international law firm where collaboration, quality and innovation play a key role? Spread your wings and join the Bird & Bird family in our renewed Trainee programme!
If you would like to work in one of the leading business law firms in Finland, with an international approach, we are happy to introduce you to our Trainee programme. The programme consists of intensive 5-6 months during which you will work as a full-time Trainee. The purpose of the programme is to offer you an opportunity to try your ‘birdie’ wings in practicing commercial business law.
As a Bird & Bird Trainee you would work for various practice groups assisting the firm’s lawyers in diverse and challenging assignments. Your duties will include similar work as our newly graduated lawyers do, for example, drafting legal documentation and collecting information regarding a wide variety of issues. As we think it is important for you to start looking for your future field of specialisation in commercial business law, we also aim to give you an opportunity to work more closely with one of our practice groups at the later stage of your traineeship. You will be supported by your Trainee colleagues and an assigned personal tutor throughout your traineeship. During your time with us, we encourage you to take part in our internal trainings and various social activities.
If you are in the final stages of your studies, eager to learn and have an excellent command of Finnish and English, you might be our new birdie Trainee. Our next Trainee periods start in February and May 2020:
Period starting in February 2020:
- 3 February 2020 - 30 June 2020

Period starting in May 2020:
