My experience in the law firm “Scornik Gerstein LLP” had been really formative, helpful and good for my future. In these 2 months I increased many aspects and I learnd many new topic of different laws. This law firm works both with common law (uk law) and civil law (European law).
They give me many differents cases to solve with the right law to apply and finding the solution: I should search the applicable law in cases of civil law or commercial law. The staff supported me if I needed some further explications or some explanation. I revised and draft contracts, support the deployment of intellectual property and data protection legislation worldwide, draft notes etc.. I also took care of legal procedures regarding legalization, apostilles and notary affairs, support in the different departments of the office.
I improved my knowledges, skills (intellectual and practical): commercial awareness, communication skills, attention to details, time management, research and analysis etc…
Moreover I had weekly meetings with the Managing Partner to identify my practice and gave me guidance and advice where improvements could be made.
In conclusion, I can say that this traineeship has been really formative and helpful for my future job.!
