Become a part of Bär & Karrer as
Student trainee

in Zurich, Zug, Basel and Lugano 

"My highlight as a student trainee was that I never felt like one," remarked one trainee recently who joined us as a student trainee. Indeed, you will be accepted into one of our teams in an uncomplicated manner and will immediately work on really exciting mandates. From day one, you will be part of our almost legendary "trainee community" with daily exchanges and many joint activities. No wonder, many come back to us again.


Interesting tasks:

  • Supporting a partner and the associated team of lawyers during 6 intensive weeks in really exciting mandates;
  • Working on interesting, sometimes large mandates that attract attention beyond the professional world;
  • Well looked after, but still able to work independently very quickly.


Your profile:

  • Completed Bachelor's degree (Bachelor's certificate not mandatory);
  • You are fluent in German and very good in English;
  • Curiosity to learn a lot in a short time;
  • Ambition to familiarise yourself quickly and make an important contribution to success
  • Fun in teamwork and lively exchange and a portion of humor.


An interesting advantage package for you:

  • One of the most respected law firms in Switzerland with an international reputation: with 150 employees well positioned for large mandates that cause a stir, and with our partnership fast and decisive at the same time;
  • First-class support in a dedicated team with top lawyers who are happy to share their knowledge;
  • Permanent knowledge updates with seminars or short on-the-job training sessions and general access to a broad range of continuing education opportunities;
  • Part of the "trainee community" consisting of two dozen prospective lawyers and other trainees with many activities and a great cohesion;
  • Pleasant (and perhaps even surprising), uncomplicated interaction with each other with what is probably the best team spirit in the industry;
  • You will find many more advantages of a commitment to Bär & Karrer here.
