Young Ukrainian lawyers specializing in civil, commercial and economic law have the opportunity to take part in an internship program in Germany. The program is organized by the International Legal Cooperation Foundation (IRZ) in cooperation with the Federal Chamber of Advocates and the German Bar Association.

Seminars for the program participants and internships at a law firm will take place in Bonn from August 22 to September 27, 2024, the IRZ Foundation reported.

  • accommodation at the internship placement;
  • covering everyday needs during the entire internship period in the amount of 550.00 euros.
