Student intern Sophie A.

“The entire Summer Uni is a highlight! In-depth insights into the various fields of law, workshops on corporate acquisitions and transaction management, training in legal English, presentations to clients and close involvement in the everyday work of the law firm, rounded off by participation in the firm’s annual outing and its volunteer day: I can highly recommend the Summer Uni to anyone wishing for a great experience during their internship."

Student intern Jonas G.

"Anyone who has ever wanted to immerse themselves in the everyday life of a commercial law firm would be well advised to participate in Oppenhoff’s Summer Uni. Individual tasks in the assigned practice groups alternate with exciting lectures and practical workshops. The socialising aspect is not neglected either."
