Ready for Challenges in a Top-Tier Law Firm?
Apply for White & Case’s Trainee Program
White & Case Helsinki office is recruiting two law students who are in the final stages of their studies to work as trainees during a four-month period starting in May 2021. The trainee position is full-time.
Our trainee program offers law students an opportunity to gain experience and training in a global law firm. Typical assignments for trainees include legal research, legal translation, dealing with various governmental authorities, preparing and maintaining transaction data rooms, as well as drafting various transaction documents, memoranda and minutes. Our trainees work closely with our transaction teams and have full access to our internal trainings.
We want to recruit trainees with energy and enthusiasm - individuals who show initiative, adaptability and have the ability to work in teams but are not afraid of individual responsibility. We expect great communication and language skills from our trainees. Law students interested in the trainee position should have finished the majority of their studies to maximize their benefit from the trainee program. Further, having international experience is considered a clear advantage.
If you are interested in working on matters with a truly global outlook, the term of the trainee program begins on May 3, 2021 and runs until September 10, 2021. The application deadline for the May-September term of our trainee program is January 3, 2021.
To apply, please submit the following documents online at https://www.whitecase.com/careers/locations/finland:
(i) your cover letter and CV in English;
(ii) a recent copy of your transcript/record of completed university studies;
(iii) your certificate of matriculation (in Finnish: ylioppilastodistus); and
(iv) your certificate of graduation from higher secondary school (in Finnish: lukion päättötodistus).
Please note that we will review applications on a rolling basis, have a limited number of traineeship positions to offer and may fulfil the positions before the end of the application period. We therefore recommend submitting your application as soon as possible.
