Brooklyn Law School - LLM Student Story SophieSophie

Thomson Reuters, General Counsel (Compliance) Externship

How did you obtain this position? The externship was advertised on the BLS careers site. I also received support from my career counselor with my application.

What will your work entail? I will be assisting in reviewing and updating existing company policies relating to anti-bribery, trade and privacy, in line with US and international laws. The role will also involve delivering relevant training to employees and reviewing contract clauses.

Why did you choose this position? I am particularly interested in anti-bribery laws, and compliance more generally, because of previous academic and employment experience. I am also eager to gain some insight into the in-house lawyer’s day-to-day responsibilities, so the position was a great fit.

Bridgeton Holdings, General Counsel (Real Estate) Externship

How did you obtain this position? Through Brooklyn Law School’s Real Estate externship program.

What will your work entail? Review and production of legal documentation relating to the purchase and sale of both commercial and residential real estate.

Why did you choose this position? I was practicing real estate law in my home country before coming to the US for my LL.M., so I wanted to gain some experience of how it works here in the US. I hope to then use these skills in my career going forward.

Brooklyn Law Incubator and Policy Clinic (“BLIP”), Innovative Ventures

What will your work entail? BLIP assists clients with structuring license agreements, intellectual property protection, web documentation and incorporation. I will also be providing general legal advice and potentially litigation support, when necessary.

Why did you choose this position? I am interested in business law and policy, and businesses more generally, so the clinic’s work really interests me. I am also keen to help those who would otherwise be barred by finances from entering their respective industries. It will be great to give clients the creative legal assistance they require.
