Trainee programme

AWA's trainee programme, training prospective patent attorneys and future experts in the field of Intellectual Property (IP), is the only one of its kind in Europe (and maybe, even, in the entire world).


Right now we are recruiting trainees, starting in September 2020 at our offices in Malmö, Gothenburg, Helsingborg Jönköping, Linköping, Stockholm, Växjö and Östersund. We collaborate with Academic Work in this recruitment process. Read more about it here (Swedish).

A place in the programme gives you the opportunity to acquire the strategic and tactical knowledge essential to achieve success as a patent attorney.The trainee programme is directed towards graduate engineers, PhDs and young professionals with a few years of work experience in technical disciplines, primarily within the fields of electrical engineering, computer technology, biotechnology, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, technical physics and industrial economics.
