Working as a project law student

Experience everyday life at a law firm

A student job with us can be the start of your legal career, and it can help clarify your future dreams. We know it can be hard to juggle your studies and a part-time job, but we will help you and take care of your development, your future and your career from the very start.

As a project law student, you are new to law school and may not yet have a full grasp of the legal method, but you really want to learn about everyday life at a large, international law firm. You can join us as a project law student from the third semester of your bachelor’s programme. As a project law student, you will work with the firm’s law students, assistant attorneys and attorneys. You will primarily assist with indexing tasks and data room creation related to major litigation and transactions. You will also have the opportunity to help the firm’s law students with simple but important legal tasks. Through your work, you will gain in-depth knowledge of the workflow and processes of a large law firm.

If we are the right match, you can apply for a job as a law student once you have gained more experience with us and in your studies. Working as a law student, your tasks become more demanding and heavier from a legal point of view. We typically hire law students from the fifth semester of the bachelor’s programme. We will help you to the next step in your career through continuous evaluation, development and guidance.

Each year, at the end of August, a new team of project students starts.


Briefly about working as a project law student

  • You work about 12 hours a week.
  • You will receive ongoing guidance to help you develop your skills.
  • You will work in a team with several other project law students at the Copenhagen office.

“I have been involved in gathering and organising evidence in a trademark opposition case and researched and described the rules of universal succession in the context of a demerger for another case”
