We are always looking for ambitious, resourceful and curious new talent in different stages at their studies to grow with us. Krogerus employs some 50 trainees annually. In addition to our legal trainee programmes intended for law students at different stages of their studies, we offer traineeships in our assistant team as well as our business functions.

Legal trainees - Want to see what law firm work is really like?

Law school teaches you theory, but not until you have worked with some of the top practitioners in Finland you see what it is really like to practice law. At Krogerus we work together to create an environment that brings out the best in you. Our approach is hands-on and practical and we believe in continuous learning and development.

Our trainee programmes are an important channel for lawyer recruitment and many of our lawyers have previously trained with us. Our current trainee openings are available on the open positions page. However, you can always send us an open application.
