Hi! I’m Laura and I am the new intern at Backstage Legal.
How did you end up at Backstage Legal?
Approaching the end of my Bachelor’s studies in International and European Law at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, the curriculum requires the completion of a graduation internship. Throughout my extensive search for a suitable intern position, I couldn’t find a position offered that met the requirements imposed by my university, until an interviewer kindly decided to recommend me to a few of his fellow legal professionals. After that, I was contacted by Mr. Petit, who offered me the amazing opportunity of completing my internship at Backstage Legal.
What will you be doing during your internship?
Throughout my time at Backstage Legal I will be conducting research into various topics related to Mr. Petit’s cases, drafting articles, memos and any other necessary documentation, engaging into the client acquisition process, and partake in the social media advertising of Backstage Legal as well as The Dance Lawyer [De Dance-advocaat in Dutch].
What do you still like to find out or learn?
During this internship, I intend to learn as much as I possibly can about the ins and outs of the music industry – how the law interacts with the creative process, what the best practices are for ensuring a musician’s/songwriter’s “smooth sailing” when it comes to releasing their music and collecting their royalties, as well as gain a deeper understanding of how contractual agreements operate in the music.
So, Laura, what music is currently on repeat with you?
As far as music is concerned, not a day goes by where I don’t have music playing any chance I get. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of R&B, Soul and Pop, though generally I also prefer Rap, Alternative Rock, and certain kinds of electronic music depending on my disposition. At the moment I can’t get enough of the latest releases from artists like Mike, Miley Cyrus, Tory Lanez, and Taylor Swift among others.
