A large part of your training is integrated in your daily work where the complexity of your assignments will increase proportionally with your development, and you will be given more and more independent responsibility. Client contact and meetings are part of your daily work through which you will train and develop client relations already as an assistant attorney.
The nature of the assignments will vary greatly, and you will often participate in inter-disciplinary teams. This - together with our redeployment scheme where you will change team once during your term as an assistant attorney - means that you will obtain a solid and broad base for your future career. This is supported by a personal training plan.
Professional and personal sparring
You will be attached to a partner, who will be the immediate superior responsible for your development. In your daily work, you may also expect full attention from experienced attorneys and partners giving high priority to your training and taking the time to give you useful feedback on the assignments performed. In the beginning, you have a tutor who will help you get started and, after approx. three to six months, you will choose a mentor with whom you may discuss job satisfaction, career and other issues.
Horten Academy supplements and supports the formal assistant attorneys’ education, and a plan has been made for the qualifying courses you must attend during your term as an assistant attorney. Supplementary education abroad or national or international postings are also possible during your term as an assistant attorney if we consider it relevant.
Horten conducts many cases in court, and we take pride in ensuring that our assistant attorneys are not given a fictional case for their bar exam, and Horten Academy also offers a number of thorough litigation courses.
In order to be a competent assistant attorney, it is important that you thrive and find it fun to go to work. Our informal culture, flat hierarchy and respectful tone contribute to ensuring this together with the high prioritisation of teamwork in the assistant attorneys' team.
