For three months, a group of Chinese law students interned at ECCEDU as part of our EGIP program. They lived and worked in Prague, where they gained valuable legal and administrative experience in a real-life work environment; for some, it was their first experience doing real legal research or working in a group in a professional setting.
It was also the chance to immerse themselves into European work culture. For one of the students, ‘the best was to learn more about this European country’s customs and culture.’ Students were especially grateful for the opportunity to learn and use business and legal English, which they’ve rarely encountered.
Besides their internships, students attended one lecture a week. Topics included general skills such as ‘public speaking’ with Ondrej Mrkus or ‘Purpose and Happiness’ with Denisa Dedicova. The interns attended more specific lectures too, covering a legal English crash course with Tomas Elbert or the way law firms develop with Jana Sedlakova.
It was a pleasure having these Chinese students over and we’re glad they’re going back to China better prepared to tackle the challenges of the job market!
