Paris Bar - Stage International 2018

14 May 2018

The Law Society is taking applications for Stage International. Since 1991 the Paris Bar has hosted an eight-week traineeship known as Stage International which attracts young French speaking foreign lawyers from all over the world.

The aim of the internship is to help lawyers to learn about law and the practice of the legal profession in France in an international environment.  The traineeship offers a unique opportunity to create a sustainable professional and friendly network between young lawyers from diverse backgrounds.  It allows lawyers from around the world to meet and compare their different legal systems.

In October (from 8.10.18 to 30.11.18), the lawyers attend a course on the legal system, legal ethics and legal procedures in France at the Ecole de Formation du Barreau, which trains lawyers in Paris.

Lawyers receive high quality training with renowned professors and lawyers in Paris.  In November the lawyers receive practical experience in a law firm.  Tuition is fully covered by the Paris Bar. Applicants must be willing to cover other expenses (such as travel, accommodation, and meals).

Applications are welcome from lawyers who are less than 40 years of age and fluent in French. Lawyers will be required to hold their own liability insurance.  To apply, please send your CV and a letter (in both English and French) explaining your interest to Bronwyn Jones by 5pm Friday 25 May 2018.
