Writing facilities

Each year we offer office space and legal guidance to 1-2 students writing their masters' thesis within one of our legal practice areas.

Normally, one of our lawyers in the relevant practice area will provide legal guidance, in addition to the supervisor you have been assigned by the university.


Every year we offer 1-2 students traineeships with a duration of 4-6 weeks during the spring or fall semester.

As a trainee you will get a fully equipped office space and a mentor having the main responsibility for you while you're with us, both socially and professionally, based in one of our offices (Sandefjord or Tønsberg).

We will see to it that as a trainee you get exciting and varied tasks giving you the best possible insight into how the workday as an associate in Tenden is. All trainees get the chance to participate in client meetings and other meetings, and otherwise work closely with our lawyers. We aim for all trainees to participate in at least one trial while with us, including in the preparation work.

To apply for a traineeship, you must have completed at least three years of your Master of Law degree.


Applications for traineeships or a place to write may be sent together with grade transcripts and any references by email to Tenden Advokatfirma ANS ( We review applications all year. Normally, there is no deadline for applying, but in order to be considered for next semester, the applications should be sent as soon as possible the present semester.
