We have put together a special programme for trainees, which is also open to student apprentices and research assistants. Noerr Campus Jump is our way of launching your targeted training as both an expert in your field and an advisor. It gives you every opportunity to start networking intensively with Noerr's lawyers straight away. The programme, recently decorated with the azur Award 2014 for "Referendariat & Praktikum", contains the following components:
Getting on board
The structured induction programme will familiarise you from your very first day with all relevant contacts, tools and departments. We will give you a systematic overview of our practice, to enable you to get to know our whole firm's setup beyond your own team and specialist field.
You will also attend a central welcome event, where you will get to know all our training lawyers and your own fellow trainees. First-year associates and experienced partners will give you insights into a lawyer’s work, as well as our company culture, the firm's history and especially its vision and strategy. A communication session will give you a chance to reflect on your position at Noerr: your own expectations and the demands made of you.
Under the supervision of a training lawyer and within a team of lawyers, work on handling real-life cases will form the core of your placement. This will also give you the opportunity to attend meetings with clients and/or court hearings and to apply and expand your knowledge in practice. Regular feedback will give you a clear and tangible understanding of your progress and learning successes.
Specialist jour-fixe sessions, subject-related workshops and "Kaiser" revision courses
You will gain additional knowledge by taking part in internal specialist further-training sessions. First, you will accompany your team at regular local meetings for staff in their specialist field. Second, you will have workshops under the guidance of experienced lawyers and external trainers to practise acquiring and presenting specific specialist knowledge, which will be relevant to you not only during your training period with Noerr but also in your upcoming examinations. We will also give you active support in your examination preparations through "Kaiser seminars".
Again and again we will encourage your networking by organising lunches, outings and other events. The idea is to enable you to get together with your fellow trainees and our lawyers both within and across specialist fields.
Noerr Campus Jump, like all our further-training programmes, is not there "just for fun" but is genuinely intended to provide professional added value. For you, it is so that your time here can be used to best effect to satisfy your ambitions and thus to enrich your personal, social and specialist skills. For us, it is so that you will support us as an increasingly well-trained worker and, perhaps, reinforce us as a future colleague. Naturally, it is our hope and intention that you will also feel well looked-after socially during this period. This is our way of encouraging you, in the end, to both think and feel yourself convinced by Noerr.
