Partnerships & Awards

Our law firm is committed to training the legal experts and lawyers of tomorrow

CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats has entered into partnerships with certain high-ranking organisations and schools:

DJCE CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats Award

A founding member of the Fondation Nationale pour le Droit de l’Entreprise, we have close relations with the DJCE corporate lawyer associations in France. Since 2010, we have organised the DJCE CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats Award for the best future lawyers every year, rewarding students for their ability to work in a multi-disciplinary team on a real case similar to those they will manage as a future lawyer. Members of the winning team receive €2,000 each and an internship opportunity.

MEJI Award

The MEJI Award recognises the top real-estate law students studying for a Master’s degree. The Award is organised jointly by our law firm with Juridim and Michelez Notaires. It is open to all students studying for a Master's in real-estate law or a Master's in Notarial law. The winner receives €4,000 and the offer of an internship with our law firm or in the legal department of a Juridim member-company or in the firm Michelez Notaires.

Sponsorship of the Association des Elèves et Diplômés Juristes de l’Ecole de droit de Sciences Po (AJSP) Science Po Alumni Association

Since 2010, as part of its sponsorship of the law school’s Alumni Association, every year, CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats organises a conference-debate on a legal topic studied at Sciences Po, led by our legal teams. This conference is followed by a reception during which students meet the firm’s lawyers. On this occasion, the AJSP has now established a tradition of handing out sweaters, donated by CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats, to the most recent class of law students.
