Student Trainee Exchange Programme

The Student Trainee Exchange Programme (STEP) makes it possible for law students and young lawyers to gain working experience abroad. STEP Traineeships are an outstanding opportunity to gain practical legal experience and plunge into the culture of another country. Our traineeships can last between 2 weeks and 2 years and can take place in any law related area. What makes our traineeships different? Our personal approach. Before and during the Traineeship, ELSA provides assistance to Trainees with finding accommodation, obtaining Visas and organizing social events to involve the Trainee in the daily life of the local community.

Every year, more than 200 different STEP traineeships are being offerend on three different continents. There are two application cycles: one during auttumn, and one during spring.

The next STEP application period will start on the 11th of April 2016
