Reff & Associates | Deloitte Legal launches a new edition of the educational project “Law Is Awesome!”, designed specifically for third-year law students who wish to understand what practicing law and business consultancy entails.

Students can apply for the program until January 10, 2024, and those selected will participate in a series of ten workshops conducted by lawyers from Reff & Associates | Deloitte Legal, along with Deloitte professionals and their guests, between February and April 2024, at the law firm’s headquarters in Bucharest. This new edition brings a concentrated program in springtime, tailored to the third-year students’ curricula and updated in line with the market’s latest challenges. Additionally, participants will benefit from counseling sessions with human resources specialists, job shadowing alongside the firm’s lawyers, as well as interaction with clients. At the end of the workshop period, students will receive personalized recommendations from trainers, and some of them will be selected for an internship in the summer of 2024.
