Introduction

What is “life as a global lawyer” at a large international law firm? De Brauw answers by offering you a unique opportunity: experience it through our distinctive training programme – The Brewery. It is our comprehensive 3½-year programme for junior associates who are looking for careers as global lawyers.

Our programme starts with a six-month training period, during which you will develop foundation skills and methodologies essential for international practice. After completing this, you will then move on to a Corporate or Litigation practice group, where your skills, knowledge, understanding and leadership will continue to grow. After 1.5 years you will rotate practice. Throughout your journey, we will mentor, guide and nurture your curiosity and provide you with the hands-on experience that makes for long-term, long-lasting impact.

Programme

The Brewery is inspired by De Brauwerij, our ground-breaking training programme for Dutch law graduates. We introduced our unique De Brauwerij training programme more than 10 years ago. More than 350 associates have gone through this programme that jump-started their legal careers, broadened their horizons, and created lasting friendships. The Brewery junior associates, just like De Brauwerij junior associates, are eligible for a fixed 3.5-year contract and have the opportunity to transition to senior associate and partner after that.

People

Here’s a chance to get to know two of our associates from The Brewery a bit better. Yes, they come from all corners of the world. True, their interests are broad and varied. Still, we think you’ll find they also have a lot in common. They share a passion for law,
a quest for excellence, and an unending drive to be the best that they can be.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the ultimate global village and the cultural and design hub of the Netherlands.There really is something for everyone. So if you’re new to the city, hop on a bike and take it all in. Visit neighbourhood outdoor markets and have a bit of lunch along a canal. Into culture? There are museums galore (almost 100 actually) and music venues for every taste. It’s also home to many thriving multinational corporations and world-class business consultancies.
