Professional Development (Previously STEP) is an ELSA staple, offering accredited legal work experience to law students and young lawyers. The Professional Development Committee is in charge of career-oriented events, as well as managing ELSA Traineeships. Inter alia, the Committee ensures that a professional relationship is maintained with Traineeships providers. Furthermore, it provides assistance to students with their applications and throughout their Traineeship, and actively promotes ELSA traineeships to law students. The Committee is usually comprised of a few Active Members and is supervised by the VP of Professional Development.
ELSA Traineeships are ELSA's oldest project, offering online and on-site legal traineeships in as many as thirty-three countries in and outside of Europe.
