I was an intern at Mariscal & Abogados from January to June 2018. Before obtaining my degree at the Faculty of Law, University of Rijeka I chose to go abroad and do my internship in a foreign country in an international law office. In search of international law practice I found Mariscal & Abogados thanks to great reviews written by former interns which draw my attention and I applied for it immediately.
During my 5 months stay here I got in touch with various fields of law like corporate, commercial law, labor law, IP, M&A etc. In the beginning I was mostly doing translations (Spanish to English) which helped me to improve my (legal) language skills in both Spanish and English. With time my tasks were broaden to legal research (finding case law), preparing all kinds of legal documents (claims, contracts, proposals), making analysis (due diligence) and participating in the events where representing the office. The lawyers at the firm were always ready to help, explain, answer my questions and give advice on a certain issue I was dealing with. What I appreciate the most from my time here is the professional and friendly atmosphere, and the ability to meet and work with other interns from different countries who made my stay so memorable.
The practice fulfilled my expectations and beyond and I would definitely recommend it to all law students wishing to gain valuable experience in different areas of law.
