During my studies I was able to gain valuable professional experience in teaching. It was with great enthusiasm that I helped pupils and students to better understand a certain subject. Whenever a student would come up to me with a question, I always took the time to answer it, even if it took an additional five minutes. I attached great importance to creative and innovative teaching methods. During my time there, I also gained the necessary people skills. All of these qualities i can apply now in my further legal career.
I love working with colleagues on a complex legal case. I prefer to deal with questions related to bankruptcy law. Many areas of law come together in insolvency law, such as company law, property law and contract law. This makes bankruptcy law a very challenging area of law in which I can use all of my knowledge and interests.
