Audrey Davis: Tell me a bit about yourself.
Dorottya Bereczki: I am Dóri from Budapest, Hungary. I’m 23 years old. I love animals, I like singing, drawing, writing. I am an airplane and aviation enthusiast, therefore I am quite interested in international air law. I work as a legal intern right now, and I was on Erasmus this year at University of Luxembourg.
Where and what are you studying?
I study at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, in the faculty of law. I have just finished my fourth year there, and now I will start my final year in September. We have a different educational system in Hungary than here, because we do not have bachelors and masters in law, only an undivided five years.
Why did you choose to come to Luxembourg?
Because this is a very important city in the European Union, it looks good in a CV that somebody lived, studied and worked here.
Why did you apply for this position?
I applied because I wanted to earn some money in the summer, and here there are better opportunities than in Hungary.
What kind of tasks do you do?
Dealing with the legal threats, copyright infringement, filing, contracts…
Are you paid?
Yes. I consider myself very lucky, because most of the internships in Hungary are unpaid.
What do you like most about the experience and what are you learning from it?
I have important tasks with responsibility. I am learning [about] new fields of law.
Would you like to move to/work in Luxembourg after graduating?
Yes, definitely, this is my “dream city.”
