17-21 January : Legal Careers Week

Each year, Sciences Po trains corporate lawyers, attorneys in a wide range of specializations, as well as magistrates, police commissioners, judges, and prison directors, among others, through its Law School and its master's programs (Economic Law, Judicial and Legal Careers, and the joint master's degree in Finance). For one week, we offer you the opportunity to learn more about the possible career paths after graduating from the Law School during round tables and firm presentations. On the occasion of the Siences Po Law Careers Fair, which will be held this year online on Thursday, January 20 and at Sciences Po on Friday, January 21, students will be able to meet with some thirty law firms and thus find internship opportunities or future collaborations.
