Legal clerkship

There is a lot to look forward to when you complete your legal clerkship at FPS, including a friendly working environment that is ideal for legal skills, understanding of economics and creativity to develop. Together with a mentoring team, you will take on challenging client work and be integrated straight into the team to prepare you for the exam. We support talented young lawyers with our FPS Young Professionals programme: with a great deal of curiosity and fascination for our work, we train them to become lawyers who are among the best in their field.

„FPS habe ich bereits als Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin und Referendarin kennengelernt und mich von Beginn an fachlich wie persönlich wohl und wertgeschätzt gefühlt. Der Berufseinstieg war für mich die logische Konsequenz.“

The FPS legal clerkship working group

We not only give you enough time for exam preparation, but also provide you with targeted support. In the FPS legal clerkship working group in Frankfurt, you can prepare for the second state examination in small groups: give presentations, discuss recent rulings and work on case solutions in our in-house exam course.
