Arbitration, Corporate and Competition & Regulatory Enforcement
Internships 2018
The World is our playground
Would you like to join us?

Introducing De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek’s 2018 Arbitration, Corporate and Competition & Regulatory Enforcement internships for master’s students. We serve multinational clients — in dispute, transaction and enforcement actions — globally. We’re looking for smart, ambitious law students who want to immerse themselves in the real world of an international commercial law practice.

The programme spans 12 weeks. The internship will be at our headquarters in Amsterdam and at our office in Brussels (only for C&R Internships), the hub of EU law in Europe. So if you’d like a bit of insight as to what goes on behind the scenes, well, you’ve come to the right place.

Amsterdam & Brussels
Bitterballen and cherry beer

It doesn’t get any better. Two capital cities, both cool in their own way. And while you can enjoy all of the highlights on the tourist map, the best thing about living and working in a city is getting an insider’s view.

Amsterdam is the ultimate global village. There really is something for everyone. So if you’re new to the city, hop on a bike and take it all in. Visit neighbourhood outdoor markets and have a bit of lunch along a canal. Into culture? There are museums galore (almost 100 actually) and music venues for every taste.

Brussels is another story altogether. It’s often said that Brussels is a city of contrasts where everything is possible. So while there’s hustle and bustle there are also intimate café-bars and hip boutiques. There’s government and commerce mixed with comedy and theatre. And if you’re into beer, well, you’re in the right place!

Going global
Go global or go home

Work in a firm with a boundary-less mindset and practice. At De Brauw, we work on stimulating high-profile cases across borders. We serve multi-national clients in all corners of the world. Our approach is holistic, interdependent and interconnected. Besides our headquarters in Amsterdam, we have fully integrated offices in Brussels, Frankfurt, London, New York, Shanghai and Singapore.

The Brewery traineeships
Next stop: the brewery

Our practice knows no boundaries. Why should you? If you enjoy the internship we’re hoping you’ll apply for The Brewery, our in-house training programme for global lawyers. The Brewery is an innovative training programme for English-speaking graduates looking for a career as a global lawyer. It is a full-time, six-month scheme of intensive training and development. At the end of the programme, The Brewery trainees join our English-speaking practice groups, which include Arbitration, Corporate and Competition & Regulatory Enforcement.

What are you waiting for?

A select group of talented international students will be admitted to the inaugural internship in the spring of 2018 (February – April). If you’re a high-performer working on your master’s degree in an English language international LLM programme in the area of International Business law, Competition law, EU law, Law and Economics, International Dispute Resolution or Arbitration, we’d like to hear from you.

Applications will be open from 4 September 2017. Be sure to upload all of the following before 30 November 2017:

  • Letter of motivation (maximum one side of an A4) in English
  • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Complete transcript including bachelor’s and master’s grades
  • A graded individual paper in English
  • Letter(s) of recommendation from previous internships (if applicable)
