Experience report

A report by Leonie Müller, funded with a Germany Scholarship (Deutschlandstipendium), that explains her activities as an intern and student employee at GÖRG in Cologne.

I had been studying law at the University of Cologne since the winter semester 2016/2017, and had completed my “first examination" as well as a bachelor's degree in German-French law.
2017 was a great year for me - in addition to being awarded the Germany Scholarship, I also received the notification of funding by GÖRG. My personal contact with Ewa Scheid, head of the Recruiting and Human Resource Development, and Dr Thomas Bezani, a partner in labour law, helped me decide to do a volunteer internship in labour law in addition to my studies. The internship went for six weeks, five days a week from 9 am to 6 pm. My goal was to apply my theoretical knowledge in a practical way, and to expand on it. 

I felt welcome from the beginning and received support from the entire team. I accompanied Dr Bezani to court appointments, assisted lawyers with my research, drafted legal texts and got an insight into the interesting daily work of a business law firm.

I was both encouraged and challenged - I always received in-depth feedback, which motivated me and expanded my interest in the work of a lawyer at a business law firm.
Based on the excellent experiences I made during my internship, I began work as a student employee when it ended. 

"I was both encouraged and challenged"

Overall, I can only recommend to other students that they take a peek into different careers and legal areas, to build up practical experience for later when it’s time for the theoretical studies. At GÖRG, unsolicited applications for internships are accepted at any time. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank GÖRG for the very instructive and interesting time - I would like to come back after my two-year stay in Paris!
