Personal reports

Interviews with current and former armasuisse university interns:

  1. Where did you get the idea to do an internship with armasuisse?
    Being a native Italian speaker, I was interested in gathering professional and technical experience in German-speaking Switzerland to further my future law practice. The federal administration offered an attractive opportunity. I finally found this internship opening on the Swiss Confederation Jobs Portal and applied for it. During my first interview I gained a clearer picture of the legal work being done at armasuisse (procurement law, with contract law and real estate law as "highlights") and found it interesting.
  2. What were your responsibilities?
    I supported the lawyers and clerical services of the armasuisse legal department in handling legal queries from armasuisse's specialist areas and provided legal advice on minor questions and cases.
  3. What tasks did you perform during your internship?
    Among other things I assisted in contract review (reviewing contracts and identifying potential legal issues), drafted legal positions (mainly in real estate, property, penal and HR law), in drafting contracts and contract templates and in litigation. I was also allowed to provide legal advice on minor cases on my own.
  4. What will you take away from the experience personally?
    This internship has been very enriching for me in career, professional and personal terms. The transition from student life to the career world is not so easy, even for the people who have occasionally worked during their studies. The internship was a good way to prepare for my future career path. I was able to apply my legal knowledge in the real world and to learn more about legal areas that were new to me or that I was no longer as familiar with as I had once been. I appreciated the opportunity to attend an advanced training course in procurement run by the Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics (FOBL). Ultimately, I gained a better understanding of my own strengths and weaknesses (thanks in part to constructive criticism from my peers and superiors). The experience was very useful for my personal development.
  5. Do you know what you'll do next after your internship at armasuisse?
    As soon as I’ve finished my internship here, I will continue my legal internship at a law firm in Lugano and then sit the bar examination. What happens after that remains to be seen.
