Leonie - 2019

I decided to complete a short term experience as I had set a goal for myself to become more independent and to have a greater international mindset. Going overseas to a country I had never been to before was the perfect opportunity to do this, as this would challenge me to try new things and to interact with people from all cultures. Importantly, I have always been interested in Intellectual Property Law, but there is no such course offered at UQ (only Copyright Law). When I found out that International IP Transactions was offered at Bucerius Law School, I knew I had to go!
