Try as they might, most abroad students have difficulty finding themselves in true immersion situations. An internship at Cavallini & Cantisani provided me with just that-the unique experience of true immersion in the Italian culture. General tasks such as photocopying and delivering documents take on a whole new meaning in a foreign city. I became familiar with more than just the Italian legal system. As an intern at the studio legale, I learned about daily professional life in Italy in all capacities, from stamps and the post office to the bus system. It is the perfect challenge for someone frustrated with the abundance of English and disregard for exchange students that has found its way into major European cities such as Florence-I can assure you that no one will speak English in line at Tribunale, and you are treated just like every other law student or attorney attempting to figure out La corte d'appello.
