Work Experiences

Work Experiences

Student’s growing interest and curiosity about the practical side of Law and taking up a career in legal services at a large Law Firm, led Abreu Advogados to create the programme “Work Experiences” for Law students (1st , 2nd , 3rd year) and senior high school students (12th year), with the following objectives:

  • Foster legal literacy and create an engaging relationship between Abreu Advogdos and law students;
  • Provide students with their first experience in practicing law and acquaint them with values and culture of Abreu;
  • Identify new talent.

Work Experience can have the duration of 1 or 2 weeks, where students have the opportunity to experience the daily routine of practicing law for the first time, in a large firm with international connections, and get a general overview of the activities carried out by our support teams.
