As a rule, we have interns and working students at our law firm throughout the year, whose possible areas of employment always depend somewhat on the "time of year". The first half of the year is traditionally the audit season, as most of our clients have their annual audits done during this period. Accordingly, there is a lot to do especially in this area in the first half of the year as well as many different areas of assignment. The second half of the year is then rather more about tax issues.
Regardless of these seasonal focuses, interns and working students can work in different areas and thus experience and help provide the all-round support that is typical for Stückmann. Colleagues are happy to use this flexibility to bring interns and working students into their department at short notice if they are interested. In this way, they can get to know many different subject areas, such as real estate tax law, international tax law or turnover tax law, and use this diversity to lay a good foundation for their future careers. However, those who know right from the start which area they have their heart set on can also concentrate on that area and specialise there in the long term.
In auditing, you will be assigned to an audit team that will involve you in the audit of a client. Ideally, you will be involved in the entire audit cycle and take over individual audit areas, for example. You will take attend team meetings and possibly be on site with your team at the client's premises. You will learn a lot of practical "tools of the trade", especially through the completion of your tasks, but you will also gain a lot of insight into the audit tasks of the others due to your proximity to the team.
