Firm. Lunch. Firm. Fun.
No day is just like the one preceding it. That said, the days do follow a similar structure, and Fellows can expect to follow a pattern similar to the following:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday
7:30am: Wake up, prepare for the day, have breakfast provided by the Fellowship
8:30am: Take the metro to the first firm
9:30am: Meet with the firm's lawyers and managing partners about the firm, their field of law, what they've learned, what a day in the life is like, and, then, go through the white paper case with them, offering your own insights, thoughts, and perspectives
12:30: Break for lunch
2:00pm: Take the metro to the second firm
2:30pm: Follow a similar pattern as that of the first visit
5:30pm: End-of-day meeting to discuss the day, make adjustments, and discuss tomorrow's plan
6:00pm: Break for the day; Fellows have free time
On Wednesdays, the Fellows are given a break to relax and go on an excursion. Excursions will typically last half the day, and may include:
- Traveling to Toledo, Spain
- Exploring local museums and parks
- Other local attractions
Fellows are free on weekends to explore Madrid and relax. There is typically no Fellowship programming on the weekends.
