How to become a lawyer in an international law firm

0 Comment


"My experience as a lawyer leads me to advise you to start, as a student, to improve your English. Go abroad to take refresher courses on the subjects you like, get ready to join the great forensic practice studies. These are choices that require great sacrifice but at the same time allow you to grow by giving you so much satisfaction

". These are the words spoken by the lawyer Ferdinando Bruno, a former Neapolitan student who took part in the event organized on 10 May by Elsa in collaboration with prof. Massimo Iovene "Professional Orientation Talks on the Profession of Lawyer". "The initiative – explains Federico Baffi, secretary general of the Elsa- was born in the context of a project that started a year ago with the professional orientation talks at the main outlets of Law. With this event we offer children the opportunity to get to know directly how an international law firm works.

 Unfortunately in Naples the reality of law firms is different than in Rome and Milan, where there are more companies, more capital and a direct collaboration with foreign countries ".There are many students in the Arcoleo classroom. Everyone listens to interested parties and they wait for the right moment to ask questions while the young attorneys intervening talk about their work. "The law firm Allen & Overy that we represent – explains the lawyer Stefano Parlatore – has its main office in London, then there are studies in Milan, Rome, New York, in the Middle East, in Russia, in Poland.

 In Italy the study is organized into five departments: Financial, Corporate, Capital Market, Litigation and Arbitration, Tax and Tax. Then, within each department there are further areas of specialization. Our work provides for great mobility. We must be willing to travel, to know English. It is also necessary to specialize in a specific field. When a new graduate enters a studio like ours, it tries to satisfy its interest but then it also rotates between the various departments in order to demonstrate a 360-degree attitude. At the end of the rotation it is decided. The students who prepare the qualifying examination as a lawyer temporarily interrupt the activity at the studio in order to study. 

The study also offers its lawyers language courses, management training programs and continuous assessment of technical skills to prepare better for customers. The opportunity to stay up to date is unique ". The students who prepare the qualifying examination as a lawyer temporarily interrupt the activity at the studio in order to study. The study also offers its lawyers language courses, management training programs and continuous assessment of technical skills to prepare better for customers. The opportunity to stay up to date is unique ". The students who prepare the qualifying examination as a lawyer temporarily interrupt the activity at the studio in order to study.

" And he continues: "the lawyer must ask himself three things: why we are doing research, what we can use and above all what we want to achieve".
