ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Two trainees can be accepted at the same time: the first to office in Odesa, the second to office in Kyiv.

The Trainee is expected to:
- Know how to work in a team and be sure that only in a team you can achieve high results;
- Believe that only hard work can succeed;
- Be accustomed to doing more than expected;
- Be ready to grow and develop;
- Strive to do what no one has succeeded before;
- Be ready to use modern approaches in jurisprudence.

We know how to work on complex projects, and are ready to teach you this. Thus, we are not afraid to take novice employees without work experience.

We are interested in finding, discovering and creating the conditions for active, enthusiastic, energetic, talented Trainees. We pay special attention to graduates of leading law schools with good grades in diplomas.

We provide career opportunities to the Trainees, and we are ready to individually consider the possibility of combining work with studies in a magistracy.
