“I have always heard that internships are fruitful, but I didn’t realize how true is that until mine, at Trojan Economics. Through different research tasks and discussions on legal and economic opinions, academic concepts became fundamental tools, as I was given the opportunity to interact and learn in a professional setting. The internship has enabled me to develop not only my business skills and professional knowledge, but also my personal qualities, like integrity, commitment and self-motivation. I enhanced my awareness on contemporary competition law matters, and I developed my communication and research skills, following the valuable supervision of the team. Internship experience in Law and Economics is formative and foundational for my future career. Last but not least, I am so thankful for the opportunity to meet and learn from the leading team in the competition economics in Cyprus.”

“Being a law student with almost zero legal background in competition law, this internship has given me great insight into how competition law correlates with different economic and commercial areas. During my internship, I had the opportunity to apply skills gained from the university on a practical level while enhancing my critical thinking and written communications skills. I received guidance throughout the process of drafting my project, particularly on effectively conveying the most important issues to the reader. On top of that, I enhanced my commercial awareness and learned about the challenges of competition law in contemporary issues. The skills and knowledge gained during this internship are essential tools for every law student and future lawyer.”

“During my internship, I gained valuable insight and knowledge in EU Competition Law, a relatively unfamiliar area of law to me. This opportunity proved crucial in improving my analytical skills through conducting lengthy research on high profile cases that reached the EU Courts. I researched the latest developments in gun-jumping cases and the recent General Court’s annulment of the European Commission’s decision to prohibit the Hutchison-O2 merger (CK Telecoms UK Investments Ltd v European Commission). The fact that I dealt with the latest developments was particularly exciting since there are still many unresolved issues and the legal and business communities are still trying to ascertain the future development of EU Competition Law. Following detailed feedback and guidance from Dr. Agisilaou and Trojan Economics, I produced two articles that were published in Dikaiosyni (Cyprus’ legal portal).”

“During my internship at Trojan Economics I had the opportunity to be involved with a variety of aspects of the legal profession such as research and analysis of law resources, observation and provision of support in the company, drafting and revising of articles regarding burning questions of Competition Law, etc. Inarguably, through this experience I have also gained valuable knowledge from a practical point of view. Furthermore, this experience made me realise the importance of not only being motivated and having confidence in your work but also having a proper supervision can help you achieve excellent results on projects. In this developing and competitive market, a sound knowledge of commercial aspects is essential for all legal professionals.”

"On the whole I had a brilliant internship experience. During my time as an intern I was able to independently work on projects while learning from the experiences and expertise of the staff. Through the study of literature, articles and case law for the preparation of a document with Q&A on the role of economic experts in competition matters, both in the administrative procedure before the European Commission and the context of court trials, I got a deeper knowledge on issues regarding competition law and administrative law. At the end of the day, it was enormously rewarding to be able to see some of the things I learnt in law school come to live in practice. The internship at Trojan Economics proved to be an enriching and fruitful experience for a young law graduate."
