I truly believe that the international focus of the Commercial and Company Law master efficiently covers all the most important concepts that a young legal professional should know at the beginning of their career, no matter what country they will be working in.

Alumna Commercial and Company Law 2018-2019

My name is Sonia Vanzo and I’m working as an in-house legal counsel for Sanne Group Luxembourg, which is a leading service provider in the investment funds industry.

My current work entails addressing all legal related needs of the company in a team of two, working together with the company's legal team head. Working in such a small team allowed me to learn at an extremely fast pace, being involved in the company's legal and regulatory framework.
This leads to a less strict daily job routine, as I have had several different tasks. For example, I have worked on setting-up new procedures, new agreement and terms and conditions templates, monitoring the legal and regulatory standing of the company as well as providing the company's clients with appropriate agreements, reviewing and negotiating the necessary clauses together with the client's lawyers.

The knowledge I have gained in the master is reflected in my work especially through my company law knowledge and my negotiation skills. I truly believe that the international focus of the Commercial and Company Law master efficiently covers all the most important concepts that a young legal professional should know at the beginning of their career, no matter what country they will be working in.
During the master, I also had the chance to represent the university at the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot competition, which was a remarkably valuable experience that enriched my commercial and arbitration law knowledge and most importantly allowed me to develop several soft skills, being instructed by encouraging and supporting coaches.

In my opinion, there are numerous ways to develop one's skills by being engaged in the different opportunities the faculty offers (for example student panel, moot court competitions, student associations), which are as important as the legal knowledge gained during the studies and which certainly facilitated me to find a job during the completion of the LLM.
In conclusion, I am satisfied to have chosen this particular master and would recommend it to students interested in commercial and company law.
