Robin Sievers, Frankfurt a. M. Germany / December 2019 – February 2020
Within the context of my post-university apprenticeship at court I spent my last three month stage at Heskia-Hacmun Law Firm.
After I had already had an internship there for a couple of months in 2017 before starting my apprenticeship at court, the stay with Heskia Hacmun was not a completely new experience, but a return.
My responsibilities included writing legal opinions, translation, as well as legal research connected to German and international law. Furthermore I did drafted correspondence and applications to German public offices. I was also sent to several Israeli courts and public offices.
I also had the opportunity to take part in court sessions in Hebrew.
The team was always very friendly and understanding, as well as happy to answer any questions. Besides me there was usually between 1 and 5 other interns, which is why we were able to distribute the weekly work time between us. On top of that the team tries to integrate its interns not only into the workplace but also into the life in Israel. One stays in touch so also former interns come by and visit sometimes when they’re in Israel.
Heskia-Hacmun always encourages interns to take some time off to explore the country, which made it possible to also plan trips on short notice. I especially love Tel Aviv though, which to me is my second home.
I hope that also future interns will enjoy their time.
