Reed Smith Paris offers students completing their law degree an opportunity to take their first step in an exciting career and see the work in an international law firm. We have an average of 20 trainees a year in all our practice areas: litigation, corporate, data privacy, shipping and international trade, employment, financial industry, competition, energy and natural resources, real estate, and tax.

We select master’s- or doctorate-level French- and English-speaking students from universities, law schools, business schools, Grandes Ecoles, and advocates schools (École de formation du barreau (EFB), Haute Ecole des Avocats Conseils (HEDAC), etc.) to join us.

Trainees at Reed Smith are an integral part of the team and take increasing responsibility over their six-month internships. They tend to create strong bonds with the other trainees, associates and partners of the firm.
