Legal Skills

Please, fill in the fields below based on your skills’ self evaluation. You will need to justify the chosen skills and levels in your CV and Motivation letter by using the following levels’ interpretation:

  • G – general: you have completed an introductory course in the subject and have a general overview of the topics. You have knowledge in this field and are familiar with the topic;
  • A – advanced: you have a deeper knowledge in this topic, meaning that you have studied it for a longer period and done some extra activities on this subject, for example participated in some seminars or written your thesis on this topic (attended internships, essay competitions, moot courts or done some published research on the legal topic).
Please keep in mind that it is highly unlikely that a candidate can be advanced in every single legal subject and the fact that if he/she has succeeded in some legal topics with the highest grades in the respective country does not make it advanced. Also, the traineeship provider will not judge an application reliable, if a student claims to be advanced in every single legal subject.
Curriculum Vitae
Your CV must be in a PDF format.

If the traineeship provider requires additional documents, please upload them as an archive (.zip, .rar or .7z format).
