While the trainee scheme extends over four intensive weeks, the Thommessen Academy is a programme that lasts a whole year. Our work and social programme will provide you with insight into the role of a business lawyer and the work of a junior lawyer at Thommessen.

Admission to the Thommessen Academy implies that we would like to explore your potential as a business lawyer.


During one year the students will be given access to:

  • seminars with a legal and social focus
  • a mentor
  • a four-week traineeship
  • office space

Who can apply?

The Thommessen Academy is for students starting the 2nd semester of the 3rd level or the 1st semester of the 4th level.  We accept applications from students of all universities. We will cover travel and accommodation expenses for students coming from Bergen or Tromsø.

How to apply:

The next intake is in June 2018 for students starting in autumn 2018.

Any questions can be addressed to HR consultant Anne Ida Østlie.
