For years Paris Bar Assocation has been organising an international internship programme Stage International in the course of which French-speaking attorneys of other countries are offered an opportunity to spend 2 months in Paris and to get to know the legal system of France. This year senior associate Piret Luiga of TARK GRUNTE SUTKIENE represented Estonia in the programme.
In October attorneys participating in the programme attended lectures at the School of the Paris Bar Association (Ecole de formation au barreau), International Chamber of Commerce and Paris Court of Commerce as well as visited other legal institutions of France in Paris and institutions of the European Union in Brussels.
In November Piret Luiga was on internship in Paris at a renowned law office De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés. Piret’s mentor was partner Julien Horn and she focused on intellectual property and information technology law – areas of expertise in which De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés holds an excellent position amongst law offices in Paris.
