Faqs

Is this a paid internship?

Summer internships are generally unpaid. However, during your internship you will be part of the KG family and will be offered the opportunity to attend a couple of social networking and other events.

Will I join the specific practice area I have interest in?

Every effort is generally made to accommodate interns’ areas of interest. Preferences of the students are well taken into consideration, as well as practice groups’ workloads and availability. Some rotation may be possible.

How many hours does an intern work?

Typically, an internship can range from 25 to 30 hours per week.

What about virtual internships?

Currently, we do not offer virtual internships. We believe that an in-person internship provides a more valuable real-life experience for interns. Therefore, we encourage all interns to join us at our office for their internship.

Does the vacation scheme offer me an opportunity to apply as trainee?

We advise anyone interested in a training contract at KG to apply for a vacation scheme. Grade point average and class rank, participation in extracurricular activities, oral and written communication skills and interest in public service, are all considering factors for graduates to be offered a training contract at KG once you graduate law school.

Will I be notified if I am not selected?

Yes, if you are not selected for the internship, we will notify you. You will receive a notification from the Human Resources Department informing you of the outcome of your application.

How can I find out about the status of my application?

To inquire about the status of your application, we recommend contacting our Human Resources Department via email at hr@kglawfirm.gr. They will be able to provide you with the information you need.

Testimonials

Through the Summer Student Internship Programme of Kyriakides-Georgopoulos Law Firm, I became confident that by joining the Firm as a trainee lawyer I will undertake responsibilities and contribute substantially to the work of a team. Thanks to the daily interaction with the Firm’s lawyers of different cost-centers and ranks, I ascertained that the Firm’s key priority is human cooperation and the continuous exchange of knowledge between colleagues. I highly recommend to any student who aspires to carry out a meaningful and substantial legal traineeship to attend this Programme, mainly because the working atmosphere at the Firm is very friendly and welcoming.
People who know how to inspire you, cases that can excite you, and a legal firm that helps you discover the most unique part of yourself.
I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity to complete an internship in such a positive working environment. My time there provided me with unique experiences and valuable knowledge.
