During this traineeship I received a very broad and clear view of what working as a lawyer today is really like.
I would definitely recommend a summer traineeship at Schoups for those who want to make a first acquaintance with day-to-day life as a lawyer in an instructive and enjoyable atmosphere.
A traineeship at Schoups is characterised by a combination of specialisation, a pragmatic approach and collegiality. Schoups places great importance on the education and personal growth of its trainees.
Every file at Schoups is a fresh challenge that I´m delighted to take up, with room for initiative and creativity.
The trainees are supervised by a dynamic team, in which everyone is enthusiastic about giving high-quality training. The team is readily available and they take the time to give feedback or advice.
Schoups invests intensively in the professional growth of its associates, which is a major plus. The associates are well supervised and supported. I quickly learned a lot from the constructive feedback I received.
Every day is different and brings new challenges. As a junior associate, you take an important part in cases. Being the first to screen a case, allows you to play a big part in setting out the strategy.
I would definitely recommend a summer internship at Schoups. It allowed me to gain more knowledge of law in practice. In addition, I was fortunate enough to meet an excellent team of lawyers. Definitely worth giving up a part of your vacation for.
