Our opportunities

Outstanding training

We believe what makes us stand out as a firm is the attention we give to training, support and work experience. We offer the fully rounded opportunities you need to develop your understanding of commercial law and build your skills. And the foundation you need to become a successful lawyer.

At Linklaters in Belgium, we offer a range of opportunities to help you discover us in a way that works for you.

LL.M and postgraduate students

We support all lawyers and future hires who decide to do an LL.M abroad. We grant tuition fees if you're studying for an LL.M at a recognised top university in the US or in the UK and contribute to tuition fees for LL.M degrees taken at the College of Europe. We also value other international programmes, such as Erasmus and specialised LL.M and postgraduate courses at national or international universities.

Summer Associate Programme

The Linklaters’ Summer Associate Programme is for first and second year Masters students. It offers a unique opportunity to experience day-to-day life in our practice teams, working closely with our lawyers.

While you're with us, you'll also join a wide range of training sessions. These will help you to develop your legal skills, as well as 'soft' skills such as negotiation. And you'll get to know the office. Through our many social events, you'll also meet up with colleagues and start to build your network.

You will be able to apply for our 2018 Summer Programme from the 15 October 2017 by clicking on ‘APPLY’. Selected students will be invited to a reception held during the last week of November in our Brussels office.

Academic Internships

We welcome students that are looking for a Traineeship during their Master's. The scheme is organised with top universities from Belgium and around the world, giving you the chance to learn from leading thinkers in the world of law and beyond.

Legal Internships

We welcome legal interns for three to six months on either a part-time or a full-time basis. You'll be involved in all of our professional activities and gain a good sense of our culture. We consider internships as the best way to identify future Associates. For this reason, we're committed to providing a diverse and highly motivating professional experience.
