The role

We pride ourselves on giving new lawyers a truly unique experience. Whether you’re a student or graduate we aim to give you the tools and experience to forge a successful career in law. That means combining learning with experience and giving you the opportunity to work with people at all levels of our business.

DLA Piper Luxembourg is a multi-lingual, culturally sensitive, dynamic and growing team. We benefit from the advantages of a global law firm, with the advantages of a human-sized firm. Our team has a wealth of expertise on investment funds, corporate, M&A, banking, finance, capital markets, insurance, tax, and intellectual property and technology, applying sound commercial judgment to client’s legal and final decisions. We advise international clients on cross border deals with the benefits of the Luxembourg broad range, business oriented legal and tax toolkit.

Our Internship Programme is designed to give you an insight into what life at DLA Piper is really like. As an intern at DLA Piper, you are given real responsibilities, supporting our clients wherever they operate around the world. You will have the chance to learn through practical work and observation in a truly global firm, giving you an outstanding breadth of legal knowledge, as well as the practical skills that will stay with you for your entire career.

You will also be fully involved in our pro bono and knowledge activities. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with other DLA Piper offices and experience our “One Team, No Borders” way of working, to improve and test your technical legal skills internationally.

Our Internship Programme is 6 months in duration, and is available in the following periods:

  • January – June 2025
  • July – December 2025

Currently, we are welcoming applications for both periods of the programme.

Opportunities are available across the following Practice Groups:

  • Corporate
  • Finance, Projects & Restructuring (Finance/Banking/Regulatory/ Insurance)
  • Investment Funds
  • Intellectual Property & Technology
  • Litigation & Regulatory
  • Tax

This internship role is for a fixed term. It is not a Bar traineeship role. Within your application, you can submit your preference for the practice group that you would like to work in.

In addition to the eligibility criteria, we are looking to recruit interns with the behaviours, strengths and skills that will enable success at DLA Piper and within a legal career. These include, but are not limited to:

  • A strong academic record
