For the fourth consecutive year, Gide offers all law students about to begin their professional career the chance to win a 6-month paid internship and cash prizes of up to 3,000 euros.
The Challenge is looking for the best cover letter.
To enter, no need to send in your CV: only the relevance and quality of your cover letter will count!
In no more than 2,500 characters (including spaces), introduce yourself and convince us to take you on as an intern. The letters will be anonymous to guarantee objectivity.
The jury will comprise Gide partners and well-known legal names, and will contact the ten finalists for a face-to-face interview. The written and spoken word must therefore go hand-in-hand.
After the interview sessions, five winners will be awarded the following prizes:
- 1st prize: 3,000 euros and a 6-month paid internship within one of our teams
- 2nd prize: 2,000 euros and a 6-month paid internship within one of our teams
- 3rd, 4th and 5th prizes: 1,000 euros each and the chance to carry out an internship at Gide, depending on availability within the firm.
To take part, you must be admitted to a bar school in 2018 to receive your certificate of aptitude for the legal profession (CAPA) in 2019. You must not yet have begun your professional career (student internships do not count).
The competition will take place from 4 December 2017 to 19 January 2018.
Only the first 100 cover letters received will be accepted for the competition.
