“When I did my mandatory judicial traineeship in Germany to become a full-fledged lawyer, I was asked by the firm’s partner to take over the files of a lawyer about to go on maternity leave. It was in the area of Labor Law, in which I did not have much experience. However, with the real on-the-job training that followed, that did not last long. There was no permanent mentoring. I was in direct & immediate contact with clients who needed help during or after dismissals, drafting employment contracts, etc. For me, this direct relationship with the clients — helping them & receiving feedback from them — was & still is the most interesting & rewarding aspect of being a lawyer.”
