How can we help you?

Congratulations! You've finished your studies and are ready for the real world. You now face a very important decision: where to work. Of course, your first decision is not final, but it's preferable to start your career on the right foot.

Do you have strong academic qualifications, a flair for languages and a healthy dose of ambition? If so, you should definitely check out our traineeships. A sense of humour is always a plus!

What is a traineeship?

A traineeship lasts three years and allows you to prepare for admission to the bar. Under the supervision of senior associates and partners, you will receive valuable on-the-job training and be entrusted with considerable responsibility. Furthermore, you will be able to fulfil your bar obligations (pro bono cases, classes, exams, etc.).

We provide assistance and support to help you fulfil the applicable formalities for admission to the legal profession as a self-employed person.

Coaching & training

To support trainees during their first years at NautaDutilh, we've created a special training programme. In addition to legal education courses, you will have the opportunity to attend sessions in your areas of interest. We also organise general classes on client management, business skills, soft skills, languages, time management, and computer skills.


Please send your CV, a cover letter, a transcript of your grades for each year at university and a writing sample to You will be contacted by our HR manager, Sabine Geerts, or our HR officer, Yana Kornaraki.

Our people


"Sinds mijn eerste dag bij NautaDutilh heb ik meegewerkt aan een heel aantal diverse en uitdagende dossiers waarbij ik vanaf het begin inhoudelijk werd betrokken. Hierdoor voelde ik me meteen een volwaardig lid van het tax team en het kantoor."
Jennifer Goovaerts, Associate Tax


"Als junior advocaat bij het departement "Public & Regulatory" van NautaDutilh, werk ik met mijn collega's aan omvangrijke en complexe kwesties in verscheidene publiekrechtelijke materies. Ik ben erg te spreken over de ondersteuning die daarbij wordt geboden, alsook over de professionele doch persoonlijke werkomgeving die wordt gecreëerd. Deze wisselwerking maakt het mogelijk om zichzelf in een gerenommeerd advocatenkantoor als NautaDutilh zowel op persoonlijk als professioneel vlak te ontwikkelen en verder te ontplooien."
Bert D'hondt, Associate Public & Regulatory
