In order to be able to follow the growth of the Luxembourg financial centre, law offices have long since begun to look for much needed talents abroad. As a consequence, the Competence Centre designed a training to help these international talents integrate the Luxembourg legal framework. The programme also enables local talents to specialize in specific legal fields.


At the end of the training, participants will have grasped the subtleties of the Luxembourg legal framework whilst also having had the opportunity to gain extensive legal knowledge of a chosen field of expertise.


The training follows a modular system including 2 mandatory modules that can be completed with up to 4 optional topics.
