Congratulations to All New Law Students

8 July 2020

You did it! We at Hannes Snellman want to congratulate all new law students for achieving your goals – well done!

We asked our employees what their first thoughts were when they got accepted into law school and what piece of advice they would give to their younger selves. 


What were your first thoughts when you found out that you had been accepted into law school?

"I was incredibly relieved but also terrified because I realised that I was headed into adulthood."

Heikki Majamaa, Counsel


"It was great knowing that all my hard work had paid off and my dream had come true. I had worked hard and earned my place in law school, and it was finally time to enjoy it!"

Oona-Maria Kultti, Office Support Trainee


What advice would you give to your younger self?

"Law school is a great experience, and you should make the most of it. I encourage all new law students to take part in different events, to step out of your comfort zone, and to meet new people. The friends I made back in law school are still some of my closest friends."

Anton Karlais, Associate
