STEP – Student Trainee Exchange Programme
STEP is a trainee exchange programme that enables law students and young lawyers to complete law related, paid internships all over Europe. Thereby for ELSA members opens up the possibility to gain cross-border practical experience as well as the culture of another country.
The traineeships are between two weeks and two years and can take place in any law related area; law firms, courts, public institutions, banks, in-house legal departments, consulting firms and international organisations. Before and during the traineeship, ELSA provides assistance with finding accommodation, applying for visas, when necessary, and organising social events to involve the trainee in the daily life of the local community.
