Bucharest, 22 March 2017: Mușat & Asociații announces the continuation of the program “Mentor”, by means of which it invites all future lawyers to participate in paid internships within the firm. Developed together with the Faculty of Law within Bucharest University, through Law Students Association, the educational program offers its student the possibility to integrate themselves in teams of lawyers with experience in complex mandates, in an organizational culture which encourages the development of natural talent and the achievement of the maximum performance.
“We believe that is a natural gesture to support the young people interested in a career in law to discover the beauty of this profession in a rigorous but diversified environment. Being intended for the best students at Law in the 3rd and 4th years of study, the program proposes itself to open the path to a career within our firm to the future talented lawyers, those who are passionate about the profession and have strong knowledge”, said Paul Buta, Partner with Muşat & Asociaţii.
“Muşat & Asociaţii Mentor” is a program which proposes itself to answer to the educational needs of the profession of lawyer, to offer the students a high quality professional beginning, so that they be motivated to follow their inclination after they have understood how one of the largest firms of lawyers in Romania works.
By this action, Mușat & Asociații offers the best students 10 paid internship, for a period of one month. The project was disclosed both within the Faculty of Law, in the presence of more than 100 students, and during the students’ visit organised at the head office of the firm.
“There were informal meetings during which we had discussions with students about our complex mandates in the last year and we told them how important passion was for the profession they chose. The legal profession also relies on the principle according to which a successful career is determined by passion and talent, but also by hard work, perseverance and patience. In our opinion, these meetings are extremely useful, as future lawyers can make a clearer opinion with regard to the level of education and the personal abilities necessary for a business lawyer”, stated Paul Buta, Partner with Muşat & Asociaţii.
Irrespective of the area of practice where students shall carry out their internship as members of the Muşat & Asociaţii teams (Litigations, Arbitration, Commercial Law, Real Estate Law, Intellectual Property, Competition Law, Tax Advisory), they shall be involved in interesting law issues and shall have to solve subjects that will challenge their legal thinking and capability.
