A typical day as a Summer Trainee

26 July 2018

Last night, we arranged our prestigious Kubb tournament with our summer trainees at Humlegården. Oscar (Summer Trainee, Private M&A) and Julia (Associate, Private M&A) were the clear winners!

Every summer, we are lucky enough to have summer trainees join us for eight to ten weeks. They work within our different business area groups and assist with a variety of assignments, cooperating with lawyers and support staff.

Ebba (Summer Trainee, Private M&A) brings us along for a typical day at the office.
No two days are ever the same. I work in Private M&A, where we have different assignments and the workload varies. I do everything from conducting due diligence to drafting corporate documents. It is exciting and a lot of fun! There is a bunch of different things happening besides work during the summer. At lunchtime, we sometimes bring a blanket to Berzelii park and have a picnic in the shade. Later during the day, we have iced coffee to cool off and the late afternoons tend to end with an after work.

We are lucky to have most of our summer trainees return to us when school starts. This autumn, for example, Ebba will be back as an evening assistant and Itai (Summer Trainee, IP & Tech) as a thesis trainee. Summer trainee is a great role for anyone looking to take the first step into the firm and get to know us. In addition to summer trainee, evening assistant, and thesis trainee, there are positions available as law student trainees. Read more about the different student positions here.
