Kornel Regehr / Germany April 2016
I had the opportunity to be a part of the legal team of Heskia Hacmun Law Firm from February 2016 till end of April 2016. From the first day on it has been an amazing time and I enjoyed every single day in the office with all the very nice and friendly people working there. Beside me, there were three other interns. We spent all the breaks together and had a very nice and familiar atmosphere.
The office itself is located in center of Tel Aviv directly at the beach. From 17th floor you have an amazing view over the city. The team of Heskia Hacmun consists of several attorneys, including the two partners Dor Heskia and Amos Hacmun. Adi Zalk is the responsible attorney for the interns. He is a very nice and friendly person, who supports you with all your questions. He really cares about the interns. I spent a great time with him at work and beside the work.
My tasks included, besides drafting legal opinions, translations and legal research regarding German and international law, also correspondence and the draft and submission of requests to several German authorities and other bodies. Furthermore, I had the possibility to join many court hearings. Although some of them were in Hebrew, it was very interesting to see the procedure of the Israeli law system.
Beside the work, Heskia Hacmun set great value upon discovering Israel. I had the possibility to travel around the country and get to know the Israeli way of life. Furthermore I enjoyed the life quality of Tel Aviv with all its beautiful beaches, open-minded people and its amazing nightlife.
I am really thankful that I had the opportunity to complete my internship at Heskia Hacmun. I had three unforgettable months in an amazing country with so many nice people. I can highly recommend taking an opportunity to work at Heskia Hacmun and having the same experience.
