An internship is a great opportunity to learn more about the practice of law. The Career Services and Internships Centre can help you to find an internship. We have contacts not only with traditional legal institutions like law firms, judicial chambers and notary offices, but also with government administrations, banks, media and other enterprises.
The best time to do an internship is after you have completed your bachelor’s programme or during your master’s programme.
The UvA Job board is the job platform exclusively for UvA students and recent graduates. Log in with your UvAnetID to view the current range of internships, graduate jobs and study-related part-time jobs in your field. New internships and graduate jobs are added on a daily basis.
Internships make up part of the experience-oriented education of the Amsterdam Law Practice (ALP) that we offer. We see external internships as a type of educational fieldwork; they take place, for example, in government, at the municipality and in law firms. Internships, as opposed to clinics within the Amsterdam Law School, are a form of “hybrid” clinical education; supervision takes place at the internship post. While performing internships, students also attend lectures at the faculty on professional responsibility and professional ethics.
