Candidates interested in a stage or associate position in our Paris office are welcome to submit a cover letter and their curriculum vitae via email to email@example.com.
A number of candidates will be invited for interviews with at least two partners and/or associates of the Paris office and certain of those candidates are invited for a second round of interviews. Associates and stagiaires are recruited on the basis of their academic record and, if applicable, professional achievements, and the evaluations provided to the recruiting committee by the attorneys who interviewed them.
Offers of stages or employment are generally extended by the recruiting committee within 7 to 14 days following the completion of the interview process.
The Paris office usually has openings for 4-6 stagiaires per rolling three-month period, and hires for those positions on a continuous basis throughout the year. Almost all of the associates who have joined the Paris office in the past three years were extended offers upon the completion of a stage with the firm.
Each year, the Paris office participates in a number of events organized in France by law schools (Paris I, Paris II, Paris X), business schools (HEC, ESSEC, ESCP-EAP), and other academic institutions (including Instituts d'études politiques), where partners and associates provide students with information on career opportunities in the firm and are generally available for informal discussions.
Representatives of the Paris office regularly interview LL.M. students at the New York University International Student Interview Program and the Columbia Overseas-Trained LL.M. Student Interview Program held every January in New York and candidates recruited through these programs begin their careers at the firm as associates in the Paris office upon completion of their LL.M. studies.
While associates in the Paris office are generally recruited through our stagiaire program and we do not typically recruit lateral hires, lawyers with relevant professional experience have, under certain exceptional circumstances, joined us as associates.
Potential candidates should submit a cover letter and their curriculum vitae via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New York Office Rotation
The firm encourages associate mobility between its various offices and in particular, each year, the Paris office offers selected fourth or fifth-year associates the opportunity of rotating to the New York office for one year.
