This is it! My practicum is coming to an end.
These last three months went so fast, I can’t believe it!
And to be honest (and I never thought I would say that), I’m pretty sad this is over!
I never knew I would learn so much and be involved in so many various court proceedings! I was really enabled to appreciate what the daily life of a lawyer is like.
I would like to thank Guillaume and Adi from the bottom of my heart for their warm welcome and for taking the time to teach me so many legal principles!
I don’t really know what to say or where to start to summarize my whole experience, but if there’s one thing that I learn is that Guillaume really cares for his clients, and the word rehabilitation truly has a sense for him.
This is exactly what I wanted to see, as I wrote in my first post: to understand the other side of the story.
I couldn’t hope for a better experience. I’ve seen: trials, court applications, client interviews, client preparation, bail hearings, resolutions discussions, etc.
Not only have I seen the legal aspect of a criminal case, but also the psychological aspect.
I’ve seen what it takes to work in that profession. And all I can say is that, if you want to become a Defence Criminal Lawyer, it has to be more than just a business. You need to have a passion for it.
Guillaume and Adi definitely have that passion for people, for law, and for their profession.
Guillaume, Adi, I wish you all the best, and as we say in French: “J’espère que ce n’est qu’un au revoir!” (I hope this is just a goodbye!)
