We offer internships in the following teams:

This program serves as a valuable tool for recognizing the talent and value of forthcoming associates, and it is of paramount importance to us that we welcome individuals with exceptional profiles and skills, to be a part of our firm. Our unwavering belief is that the cultivation of skills through training, the guidance provided by mentors and the support offered through coaching all contribute to the success of our program and, subsequently, to the thriving of Squire Patton Boggs Paris.

As an intern you will receive dedicated supervision from an associate or partner, offering continuous support, advice and guidance. You will be exposed to high-quality work, active client engagement, and have the opportunity to collaborate across various practice groups and industries on intricate international issues, transactions, disputes, and policy matters.

We are pleased that so many of our interns have joined us as associates after being sworn in and that many of them have become or are on their way to becoming leaders at our firm.
