Under the joint program with the ELSA (The European Law Students Association) Integrites International Law Firm has invited two foreign students to take internship in Ukraine this June: Milan Sykora from Prague and Jane Ekelshot from Amsterdam.
Today it is unique experience in Ukraine and Integrites ILF is a pioneer law firm which together with the ELSA provides students from European universities with internship.
One of the key aspects of Integrites work is development of young international law community. The firm has provided Milan and Jane with a unique opportunity not only to be involved into team work under the projects, but also to take a closer look at Ukrainian culture and traditions by virtue of organizing for them an exciting program with visiting the famous national sightseeings and some other interesting indoor activities.
The guests were greeted by the entire team of Integrites Kiev office with the loaf and national gifts – a vyshyvanka (Ukrainian national clothes) for Milan and an elegant designer handmade wreath for Jane.
The practice will last for four weeks: for Jane Ekelshot – in International Arbitration Practice, and for Milan Sikora – in Corporate Law, Tax and M&A one.
When we have asked them about their choice to take internship in Integrites' Kiev office, Jane answered: "For me it was a great opportunity to combine my passion for Eastern Europe with acquiring practical legal skills, that is why I have chosen one of the leading law firms in Ukraine. Besides, I have previously been in Kiev and I fell in love with this city”. Whereas, Milan laid stress on "…firm's extensive experience in the CIS, its pro-client approach and reputation, and location of office, which is in old part of city (Podil)”.
It should be noted that Integrites International Law Firm has previously invited students from Europe.
Partners of Integrites, headed by Managing partner Ruslan Bernatsky, actively develop law community in the CIS countries and increase the social responsibility in law business.
Providing young lawyers with the opportunity for self-realization in one of the leading law firms of Ukraine, Integrites makes an important contribution to the development of relations with European countries.
