De Brauwerij offers an unrivalled opportunity to 'learn on the job', expand your professional skills, and combine both with an intensive personal development programme.

The programme prepares you to practice law on the highest levels, where you take on ground-breaking matters that shape the future of our clients. What you will learn during these first years in De Brauwerij, offers a rock solid base for your future career where you make connections for life.

Our firm's training institute has two programmes: De Brauwerij (for Dutch law graduates) and The Brewery (a separate track for international associates).

What sets us apart?

Our firm operates as a strong collective. We believe in teamwork, diligence and listening for the merit of each argument. A sense of shared responsibility is the hallmark of our approach.

Putting caliber first, De Brauw lawyers do not adhere to a single mould. They hail from different backgrounds, experiences and prefer different styles. Nonetheless, they all possess key attributes: sharp minds, boundless curiosity, and an unwavering pursuit of excellence.

Building further upon our 150 year legacy, De Brauw offers a remarkable home base. As we constantly change, adapt, and even take a progressive approach to high-performance work, our people ensure we remain welcoming, kind, and fair.
