Profile of the entrepreneurs:
Florina Mihalache, 9th of January- 9th of February 2018, legal services domain. I have applied for this programme for many reasons, but the two most important were to gain the know-how on running a business and to catch a view of the Italian judicial & legislative system.
Avv. Chiara Motta, a lawyer in criminal and family domain.I have applied to this program for the main following reasons:
1) to offer to a young aspiring attorney the opportunity to live the experience of a legal environment abroad, as I would have liked to do when I was young;
2) to gain the chance to relate with a young foreign student, to know her background, her ambitions, her idea of running a business.
Quote of the NE
Working in a law firm in Italy was a great and a fruitful experience from four points of view: (1) I gained a significant number of information about the Italian legal system and I have practised and improved my research and writing skills during the drafting of my assignments ; (2) I had the pleasure to discuss with Chiara (the HE) about her business and to obtain some precious advice towards entrepreneurship and not only. (3) I met wonderful lawyers (such as Ileana- Chiara’s associate) who gave me answers to various questions about the legal professions. (4) I had the opportunity to exercise the English language and to learn some Italian. I totally recommend this kind of exchange!
Quote of the HE
Working with a young aspiring attorney coming from another country of the European Union was a positive and rewarding experience. This gave me the chance to keep in touch with a point of view of a younger generation. This difference of generation was helpful to me in order to think about new forms of advertising in my business. I had the opportunity to have a look upon a foreign legal system and to discuss with Florina about differences between Italian and Romanian legislation. This comparison made us more open and free from stereotypes. Florina was very brilliant, I think she will be a competitive lawyer. My collaborator Ileana had the chance to improve her English and I am very grateful to her for the precious help. I really recommend this kind of exchange!
