*European Court of Human Rights: The Assistant Lawyers’ Scheme

THE ASSISTANT LAWYERS’ SCHEME opens the doors of the Court to legal professionals at the start of their career, giving them the opportunity to gain experience working within a prestigious European institution. To work at the Court means to join a team made up of lawyers from every country in Europe. Within the Registry, assistant lawyers will find an open, supportive professional environment and will benefit from regular working contact with experienced lawyers, senior managers and the judges themselves.
