MARCEL BEI SEITZ WECKBACH FACKLER & PARTNER, AUGSBURG
ELSA STEP program is a great way for helping law students and young legal practitioners getting precious working experiences abroad. This spring I worked for one of the Augsburg's largest law firm, Seitz Weckbach Fackler & Partner. The law firm is dealing mainly with commercial law cases. Traineeship enabled me in-depth insight of their day to day work. Moreover, working environment was friendly and every employee in the office was helpful, as well as all of the Augsburg ELSA members. Personally, it was very interesting for me to discuss various legal topics and compare it with legal practice in Slovenia. Furthermore, I also had honour to be part of law firm's 30th anniversary in Parktheater Kurhaus Göggingen.
Before I arrived, ELSA Augsburg assisted with most of the things, especially accommodation. Moreover, they provided me with public transport information, social events and several small and important tips to make my stay easier.
Last but not least, it is my firm belief that STEP traineeships are not only an excellent opportunity to acquire practical legal experience abroad but also a way of coming into contact with the culture of a foreign country.
