Of course, at YPOG you will always have colleagues at your side who will accompany you in your day-to-day work and introduce you to client work. You will also be a regular at our law firm and training events, regardless of whether you are completing a mandatory internship, want to get a taste of law firm life on a voluntary basis, or are on board as part of our summer internship program "rYsing stars".

The internship for law students

In the summer, you will have the opportunity to be part of our team for four weeks and help shape the day-to-day work of our law firm alongside our experts. Digital, flexible; and close to the client, you will work on projects and support your team in all tasks and challenges that need to be tackled.

You will work with a tutor in the specialist area of your choice and may even have your first contact with clients. In various lunch sessions, you will get to know our core areas and what else a law firm needs to be commercially successful. Our internship program takes place across all offices. This gives you the opportunity to choose your preferred location and build up a nationwide network as an intern.

"rYsing Stars" is recognized as a mandatory internship. As a thank you for your support, you will receive pocket money of 500 euros.

Internship outside of rYsing Stars

If you don't have time during "rYsing Stars" or are interested in an area of activity other than legal and tax advice, we will try to make an internship possible outside of the summer program. Just get in touch with us and let us know when you would like to get a taste of which tasks. 

Jonathan Mang

"Thanks to the internship program, I was not only able to get to know great people across all locations, but also gained exciting and informative insights into the work at YPOG. But what impressed me most was the appreciation within the team. I was involved in the processes right from the start and always found a sympathetic ear, from the WiMi’s to the Partners."

Jonathan Mang (rYsing Star 2023)

Julia Kilali

"Internship = copying and making coffee? Not at YPOG! YPOG's internship program ‘rYsing stars’ will definitely be remembered by my fellow interns and me. Day after day, there were exciting insights through lectures, events, and the willingness of our mentors to integrate us into their work. The open and dynamic office culture at all locations made us feel like we were ‘just’ interns. Whether you want to get a taste of the specialist area, get an idea of what to focus on, or are interested in a future traineeship - the multifaceted nature of this internship offers something for everyone!"

Luis Bassanese

"The internship program at YPOG far exceeded my expectations. I was welcomed into the team with open arms right from the start and was able to experience a very open and dynamic environment in which time was taken to answer all my questions. The four-week program offered a varied mix of career and networking events as well as legal lectures.

Exceptional highlights were the constant participation in appointments with clients and the starkly client-related work, for which my mentors took a lot of time for preparation and debriefing. This gave me a very authentic insight into YPOG's areas of law and I can only recommend the internship program."
