About the Stage International a Paris

Every year the Paris Bar organises an International Stage in Paris and invites a limited number of lawyers from each jurisdiction to participate. The stage is a fantastic opportunity for lawyers to discover and practice French law in the heart of Paris.

The stage takes place during the months of October and November, with one month attending classes at the l’Ecole de Formation du Barreau and one month of work experience in a Paris law firm. The programme also includes a visit to the European Institutions in Brussels.
