I cannot begin to describe how happy I am! This morning, I had my last formal meeting/exam with the Director of the LL.M and our professor for droit constitutional to discuss my internship report and how I have found the last 3 months at the firm.
On leaving the room, I honestly thought I might cry as I was so pleased at how well it went. We have all worked so hard during the last year, and to get to this stage with everything coming together is such an incredible feeling and we deserve to be so proud of ourselves.
As well as my having my last “exam” this morning, my husband also had his last exam in flying training to become a fast jet instructor. It is such an amazing coincidence that we both finished our respective exams on the same day (and actually at the same time!) - He passed with flying colours too (excuse the pun)! Really, this morning has been the best morning ever! What an end to the last 10 months.
I fly back to the UK tonight for a friends’ wedding tomorrow and then my last day at the firm will be on Wednesday the 26th June 2013, which incidentally is the day of our Sorbonne graduation which will be held at 6pm.
In addition to the graduation celebrations, and due to our creation this year of an alumni association for the LL.M, which was formally registered in “la journal official” on the 1st June 2013, there will be a number of past students to meet and I am sure plenty to talk about! After our graduation, I am then meeting one of the girls from work at our favourite sushi restaurant to celebrate the end of our internship and as a final parting meal before I return to the UK – although I have no doubt that we will keep in touch.
What a super week.
