In early autumn, a legal firm Eterna Law announced a competition "P2P" (PersontoPerson) with partners’ support for law students of 4-6 courses from the 5 leading Ukrainian universities.
There were included Zaporizhzhya National University, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Yaroslav the Wise National Law Academy of Kharkiv, Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, National University "Odesa Law Academy". The contest was held in several stages. During the first stage all students of the mentioned universities had the opportunity to send to "Eterna Law" their motivation letter. According to the results of consideration of the motivations, the firm selected 15 participants for the 2nd round. Students which had passed to the 2nd, had to perform a number of tasks on the practice in the chosen specializations (tax law, international arbitration, commercial law, intellectual property law, judicial practice).
Five best participants of the second round had the opportunity to meet personally with the leading lawyers and partners of the firm Eterna Law. Among the best was the 4th year student of the Faculty of Law Vlad Bandrovskyy, who is studying now in Poland, in the University of Wrocław, thanks to the program of academic mobility. Vlad arrived in Kyiv for the final stage of the competition. A meeting-interview with Vlad was held by Ilarion Tomarov, Head of Intellectual Property Practice, and Maryna Fomenko, PR/Marketing-director at Eterna Law.
"I am lucky to get to the contest held by the firm "Eterna Law", – Vlad comments. – It gave me the opportunity to communicate with partners and lawyers of the firm, to visit Kiev office of "Eterna Law", which is one of the top law firms in Ukraine. Of course, I am very interested in further internship and employment there. Moreover, I was pleased that the managing partner of "Eterna Law" Andriy Astapov began his legal education at our faculty. By the way, I’m grateful to the ZNU Faculty of Law for such experience".
