Aequo Friends 2020: the launch of the fourth cohort of online internship has just started
Aequo announces the launch of the fourth cohort of Aequo Friends – the first online internship for lawyers.
The internship is designed for final-year students of law faculties of the Ukrainian universities and those studying abroad and planning to come back to Ukraine. To become the Aequo Friends intern, one should pass a test on friends.aequo.ua and have a meeting with mentors – Aequo’s counsels and senior associates.

This collaboration offers the opportunity for students to continue their studies in comfort and to arrange their internship in the most efficient manner.
The goals of Aequo are to improve the quality of legal education, to give young talents the opportunity to take the first steps in their career development, gaining professional skills and gaining experience in various practices, to increase the level of client care, and to provide effective outstaffing of lawyers for clients in the future.
