My name is Tommaso Franca, I am 26 years old and I live in Florence, Italy.
As mentioned to Mr. and Mrs. Beckett, the reason for which I am writing is that during my vacation in August, I would very much like to do some unpaid work experience in your law firm. I will be focusing on improving my English in early August so possibly the later two weeks in August would be best. This would be a great formative experience, improving my professional knowledge and helping me understand how law firms operate in the USA as well as improving both my written and spoken English.
I graduated in Law from the University of Florence in 2020 with a thesis entitled: “Liability of company participating in demergers”.
Shortly afterwards my Professor of Civil Law at the University (Prof. Giovanni Passagnoli) suggested that I join his law firm as a trainee lawyer. The law firm (Studio Legale Valori Orlandini Passagnoli) specializes in areas related to both Civil and Criminal Law, particulary Dispute Resolutions, Commercial law, Restructuring and Insolvency, Inheritance Law and White Collar Crimes.
Next July I will have completed the obligatory 16 months training after which next December I will be able to sit the Italian equivalent of the Bar exam.
During University I attended a seminar on “Mediazioni Fiorentine” in order to improve my skills in the field of A.D.R. and mediation. I also took an extracurricular notary course and after this I had a three months work experience in the offices of Raffaele Di Gennaro, notary in Florence. Between February 2017 and February 2020 I worked in the offices of the Association of Engineers of the Metropolitan City of Florence.
I hope you will be able to give me this opportunity.
With many thanks in advance for your kind interest and best regards,
