1. Why an Internship?
During your studies, as law student in the South East European (SEE) region, you get your educational experience and learn a lot about the legal system in your own country. During the undergraduate and the post – graduate studies you can gain theoretical knowledge, but also learn a large corpus of the applicable legal rules. However, the question that arises is - which is the best way to start practicing the gained knowledge, and how to get experience so that you get properly prepared to enter the complex and challenging legal professional world? The most widely known and accepted way are the internships. By undertaking an internship, as a student, you are going to be surrounded with professionals of the legal world that you seek to enter. That way you can learn from everyone around you, ask questions and impress them with your efforts. By doing so, you are going to get familiar with your future colleagues and maybe even your future employers. Besides that, it is great that you are going to get a chance to practice your knowledge, learn practical methods, and possibly earn some money to start off within the real world.
