Hello, how can we help you?


It’s important for students to gain work experience in the field as early as possible and to create contacts for the future. Through our Trainee Programmes you will experience what it is to work in one of the largest and most experienced law firms in Finland. Our trainees especially appreciate the opportunity to combine work and school in the early stages of studies. Borenius Associate Trainee Programme supports law students’ smooth transition to work life. We welcome dozens of students to our team annually.

We are continuously expanding our cooperation with students and student organisations, for example by arranging events for students, such as office excursions, seminars, and workshops at the university.

Future stars are made of today's students.
