"Lawyr.it was definitely one of the more impactful activities that I undertook in university. I now work as a lawyer in a firm with many international clients, where many of our deliverables have to be done in English. Lawyr.it was one of the very few activities available to me that helped me develop my legal English, editing the submissions for the magazine and writing my own articles.  Additionally, my role in the project my ability for developing legal argumentation, a skill that I use on a day-to-day basis at work. Last, but not least, the organizational skills that I developed, as well as the appeal of being a founding member of Lawyr.it greatly improved my resume and my chance of getting a job at a prestigious law firm."
