At Morais Leitão we have a long tradition of providing high quality internships. Each year we only admit a limited number of trainees, which we estimate to be able to integrate into the team at the end of their internships. This demonstrates our full commitment to the training and advancement of our trainees.

We are actively seeking candidates who know how to think about the law and who are able to apply the knowledge they have acquired in practice. Considering the competitive reality of the practice of law, we also require that a trainee lawyer demonstrates a sense of responsibility, the ability to work with others in a team, and the command of foreign languages.

The admission of a trainee lawyer begins with an interactive recruitment process, which usually starts in the summer of the year before the traineeship commences. We value law graduates, who have had contact with other cultures, who master languages other than Portuguese and English, and who have had personal and/or professional experiences in different environments and situations. We believe in true diversity without a specific and pre-defined profile.

This experience may also assume an international dimension, with the possibility of rotation through the offices of the Morais Leitão Legal Circle network, which includes, besides Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde and Mozambique.

In the form below you will find our recruitment platform, which is always available for new applications. Even if outside recruitment cycle, an application will be analysed on a case-by-case basis.

"The proximity between lawyers and collaborators, as well as the availability shown to us, enhances our development and allows us to face day-to-day life with the confidence necessary for the exercise of our activity."
