RGSL Excellence School last session took place on 12 February 2021, where the participants – high school students from all over Latvia - virtually visited law office Eversheds Sutherland Bitāns, got acquainted with its work and got an insight on how it is to start a career as a new lawyer. The students were hosted by Justīne Ignatavičute, Associate, Assistant Attorney at law, Banking and Finance practice counsel, and Līna Kārkliņa, Marketing and Business Development Manager.
The second company visit that day was to Printful Latvia, where our hosts were Amanda Muciniece-Krūmiņa, Recruitment Specialist at Printful Latvia, and Patrīcija Bodniece, Legal Assistant at Printful Latvia, LL.B Law & Business 3rd year student.
Thank you, Justīne, Līna, Amanda and Patrīcija for welcoming the students!
Some excerpts from the students’ feedback: “Overall I very much enjoyed Excellence School lectures, because they were really insightful. My favourite one’s were regarding the diplomacy, I learned so much from the speakers, not only what is diplomacy and what is expected of a diplomat but also what future career opportunities there are. I enjoyed that the lectures were also very engaging, I was able to ask questions and there were some practical tasks as well. Thank you for this opportunity!”
“I liked that we were able to experience what type of lectures and professors I would have if I was to choose RGSL. I especially liked the atmosphere, speakers were really friendly and I felt welcomed since the first Excellence School lecture. This truly was a pleasant experience and I can only say positive things about Excellence School.”
“I enjoyed that we were given lots of practical examples by the speakers. I liked how open to questions the speakers were. I learned so much from these lectures and the knowledge I gained has also helped me in my current studies. After every lecture, I felt very motivated and these lectures aroused my interest in law as I understood how important it is in our everyday lives.”
