FPS in Practice – the internship programme

This starts with valuable basic practical knowledge imparted through specialist lectures, workshops and case studies. Thereafter, you will work closely with a mentoring team as an intern. This allows you to gain in-depth insights into the various aspects of the firm’s work and knowledge that will help you to face your own challenges in litigation and legal advice later in your career.

„Ein Praktikum bei FPS kann ich jedem ans Herz legen. Die vielen praktischen Erfahrungen helfen für den weiteren Karriereweg immens.“

Julian Gefeller, Associate (ehem. Praktikant)

We set the same standards for you as we do for ourselves each day: to impress both professionally and personally. That’s we value team spirit, passion and social skills just as highly as an above-average result in the intermediate exam. Sound made for you? Then we look forward to receiving your application.

‘The division of the internship programme into the case study phase and the individual training gave me detailed insights into the firm’s areas of expertise. I enjoyed the friendly working atmosphere so much that I returned to FPS as a research assistant after my exams.’

‘FPS in Practice gave me a lot of insight into the processes of a law firm. I was entrusted with challenging tasks and I always received detailed feedback, including plenty of tips and assistance. That really made me feel part of the team and that I was supporting the day-to-day work of the firm throughout.’ 

Julius Ebert, former intern

‘I learned a lot from my internship in public procurement law, because I had the opportunity to be actively involved in client work even as a first-year student. As I had such positive memories of FPS, especially because of the friendly working atmosphere, I returned as a research assistant after my compulsory state exam.’
