AEQUO Friends Outsourcing Platform Launched
On 13 November 2017, a unique outsourcing platform AEQUO Friends was launched and a meeting with the first project participants called AEQUO Friends Welcome Day took place.
During the event, 12 students short-listed for the first round of the internship programme got access to AEQUO Friends online system, met their mentors, learned about their next steps and first tasks, received answers to their questions and took part in the mainstream discussion “Insights into the Competition for the Supreme Court of Ukraine”, hosting a special guest Andriy Kozlov, Member of the High Qualification Commission of Judges of Ukraine.
In July-September 2017, more than 180 applications were received from students of top 30 Ukrainian universities, living both in Ukraine and abroad (Germany, Italy, Lithuania). During September-October, the students took part in the next selection stage called “Coffee with a Mentor.” Upon completion of the first round of the internship programme, the next selection rounds are expected.
“We are happy that the online internship has generated such a genuine interest. It is a pleasure to see students from different regions of Ukraine among AEQUO Friends. We are confident that the innovative format of the internship will help law students manage their time effectively, combining studies and online internship, and choose practices which fit them best when planning their future career in law,” comments Anna Babych, AEQUO’s Partner.
