The Student Trainee Exchange Programme (STEP) makes it possible for law students and young lawyers to gain working experience abroad: in Europe and beyond.

STEP is a trainee exchange programme which works over 30 years and is connected to ELSA association from the very beginning. This programme enables law students and young lawyers to gain first hand practice of the substantive and procedural law as well as the culture of another country. The traineeships last between 2 weeks and 18 months and can take place in any law related area; law firms, courts, public institutions, banks, in-house legal departments, consulting firms, and international or European organizations.

Before and during the traineeship, ELSA provides assistance for the law student chosen for the traineeship with finding accommodation, applying for visas, when necessary, and organizing social events to involve the trainee in the daily life of the local community.
