We hope you will apply to our Brussels programmes. Applications for our legal internship and summer internship opportunities should be submitted via our online portal.

What Do We Look For?

All candidates must be able to demonstrate a consistently impressive record of academic achievements. In particular, we look for strong grades and proficiency in English. Candidates for our legal internship and summer internship opportunities should have obtained or be studying towards their LL.M.

Although being academically strong is important, we also wish for candidates to be sharp, articulate, and quick thinking. We value candidates with confidence, dedication, and team spirit, and who have an open mind and an innovative approach towards complex legal questions. Moreover, we seek candidates who share our values of excellence and collegiality and who are keen on working in a broad range of practice areas and business sectors.
