To become a lawyer in Denmark, you must, as a main rule, have a master’s degree in law from a Danish university followed by three years’ full-time vocational training as a junior associate in a Danish law firm.
At Bech-Bruun, we have a junior associate training programme in which junior associates move to a new practice group having completed the first 18 months of their three-year training programme. As a result, our junior associates receive broad, high-quality legal training.
Work tasks vary in size and complexity according to the specialisation area of the practice group in which you train. Junior associates perform independent case handling work and case handling as part of large projects involving team work.
In addition to the mandatory three years’ vocational training required by the Danish Bar and Law Society, Bech-Bruun junior associates will also participate in our internal training programme, including:
- Legal ethics.
- Client contact.
- Business development.
- English language training.
- Understanding financial statements.
- Training and coaching in connection with the bar exam and the trial exam.
