The Center for International and Comparative Law (CICL) hosted its fall meet and greet on Wednesday, September 18 in the Mattone Family Atrium.

Patrick spoke about his experience applying to and working at the NATO Practicum in Mons, Belgium. He discussed how he was able to balance school commitments and obligations with working a full time job at NATO. Maurizio spoke about his experience working at the Italian desk of Greenberg Traurig last summer. He discussed how he was able to leverage his Italian background and networking skills into landing a summer job in his chosen field. Quinn spoke about her experience working at the United States Court of International Trade after her 1L summer. She discussed how she managed to get the job and the daily activities involved in a judicial clerkship. Maria spoke about her experience studying abroad in Rome, Italy with St. John’s.

The panel was moderated by Joshua Alter, CICL’s Senior Graduate Fellow. In addition to moderating the panel, Joshua spoke about his experience working in The Netherlands after his 2L summer, competing at the Jessup international law moot court competition, and being a CICL Student Fellow as a 3L.
