Since 1990, our firm has continuously maintained an internship program that has provided practical training for more than 100 student lawyers from several European nations. It has been a source of mutual learning among European and American jurists as well as a foundation for ongoing professional cooperation and lasting transatlantic friendship.
Our practical training is for a period of twelve continuous weeks. The objective of the program is to provide a meaningful international training experience in a professional field.
We receive a large number of applications and we have workstations and cases for only 1-2 interns at one time. We generally process applications 12 to 14 months in advance of the internship term, and for this reason, we ask applicants to apply for their time of choice as early as possible. However, sometimes we can accept interns on short notice.
Since 2001, Mr. Fredricks has conducted a series of seminars, featuring various specialized speakers, for members of the diplomatic missions in Los Angeles focusing on issues of comparative law and taxation between the US and European jurisdictions, which also our interns attend. In many cases our interns have the chance to attend external seminars, e.g. from the Beverly Hills Bar Association, and join cultural events.
We are looking forward to cooperate with you!
