Law Assistant positions

You will learn

Looking to spread your wings? Hungry for a challenge? Want to get to know us better? You’ve come to the right place. There are lots of different ways for students to explore our firm.

Law assistant positions

Looking for a part-time gig where you can earn while you learn? Apply for a position as one of our law assistants. We offer employment contracts in either Corporate, Regulatory or Litigation for a minimum of six months and 15 hours per week. Although many of our legal assistants have completed an internship at De Brauw, it is not a requirement. Applicants selected for our shortlist will be invited for an online assessment and an interview with one of our Recruiters and a Senior Associate.




Student Traineeships

Student traineeship positions

Want to experience all things at De Brauw? Apply for a full time, two-month traineeship in our Corporate, Regulatory or Litigation practice groups. Student trainees are paid a monthly allowance and travel expenses are reimbursed. If you’re an ambitious student in the last year of a bachelor’s programme, or studying for your master’s, we hope you’ll apply. Applicants selected for our shortlist will be invited for an online assessment and an interview with one of our Recruiters and a Senior Associate.

Please inform us in your motivation letter whether you prefer to work at our Corporate, Regulatory or Litigation department.





You will grow.

Do you want to be the best lawyer you can possibly be? A select group of promising young Dutch and international lawyers go through our intensive development programme each year. No matter what your ambition we promise you this: you won’t find a better launch pad!

De Brauwerij

Looking for top-flight training with one of the leading law firms in the Netherlands? De Brauwerij is our ground-breaking training programme for Dutch law graduates. More than 300 associates have gone through this unique programme that jump-started their legal careers, broadened their horizons, and created lasting friendships. At the onset of the programme, De Brauwerij junior associates receive a fixed 3.5-year contract and have the opportunity to transition to senior associate and partner.


The Brewery

We have decided not to initiate a Brewery program in 2021 and it is currently unclear when a next Brewery will start. We don’t have any vacancies for non-Dutch speaking starters in our Legal practice groups at this moment. Please keep an eye on this page for any future changes.

Senior associates

You will reach.

Are you an experienced lawyer with drive and ambition? Wherever you’ve qualified, whatever your area of expertise, if you have the knowledge and expertise to work on complex cases for many of the world’s leading multinational companies, we’d like to hear from you.

We’re looking for candidates with a minimum of five years’ experience working with a top tier law firm. At the same time, we value individuality and embrace difference. It’s true, the standard is high but then you wouldn’t have it any other way. Have a look at our vacancies to see what’s on offer, but if you don’t see a position that’s quite right, we hope you’ll send us an open application. There’s always room for brilliance.


Business solutions and support

You will innovate.

Looking for a place where your contribution will be valued? Look no further. We’re always searching for bright, hard-working individuals to help us innovate and accelerate our business. We offer a stimulating, challenging environment where everyone—regardless of his or her position—is treated with the respect they deserve. Our Business Solutions and Business Support colleagues often say that “there’s never a dull moment” and that they enjoy being part of a firm that works across borders. They like our entrepreneurial spirit and value our open door policy. But most of all, it’s the chance to develop beyond their wildest expectations—to learn, reach, and grow—and to realise their potential to be best in class.

We hope you’ll consider one of the positions on offer. If there’s a fit, we’ll invite you to join us for an interview held in either Dutch or English.
