ILF students from the LL.M. Finance and LL.M. International Finance programs accompanied by ILF staff went on a field trip to Berlin from 27 untll 29 October 2016.
Upon their arrival by bus on Thursday, 27 October, the students were divided into two smaller groups in order to participate in a 2-hour city walking tour of Berlin to discover the cultural as well as the historical sights of the capital of Germany. In the evening, students were invited by the ILF to a traditional German restaurant for a get-together dinner.
In the morning of 28 October, our students received a guided tour of the German Parliament at the Reichstag Building (Reichstagsgebäude) which was followed by a visit to the Berlin office of Hengeler Mueller Berlin where the ILF students received a warm reception. Dr. Ulrich Blech, Partner at Hengler Mueller Berlin, together with Dr. Sebastian Schneider, Senior Associate, held a presentation giving our students an introduction of the history and business scope of Hengeler Mueller as well as the career paths of their lawyers. After the presentation, our students could ask questions and get advices on career opportunities.
Our students then had the afternoon and evening of the 28 October free for further sightseeing and entertainment before heading back for Frankfurt in the morning of the 29 October.
