Summer Student Programme 

During our summer student programme you will get the opportunity to visit and work in our London office.

The Lisbon office Summer Student Programme lasts four weeks. Two weeks are spent in London and two are spent in Lisbon itself. In London, you’ll have a real chance to network with students from other Linklaters' offices and receive a week’s training on the law market including recent business law trends. Added to that, you’ll need to complete a project which involves presenting to lecturers at the College of Law in London, as well as the rest of the summer programme intake.

During the Lisbon-based part of the programme, you’ll be given a two-day induction, followed by time spent in a practice group doing real work for real clients. Throughout the course you’ll have a principal and a trainee buddy who will provide you with a first-hand insight into work and life at Linklaters. Our aim is to give you a true experience of life at Linklaters - so that you can make an informed decision when choosing the firm you wish to join.


To participate in our summer programme, you will need be in the penultimate or final year of a law degree or in a law master degree. The recruitment process begins in March and the summer programme starts in August each year. During the recruitment process will meet both lawyers and representatives from HR. Remember, this is a mutual process. You have to decide whether we are right for you just as much as we have to decide if you are right for us.

To apply, please send us you CV and a motivation letter explaining the reasons why you would like to join our summer programme:
