    Pros

    Having the chance to work in a multicultural place were major legislation is designed is one of the best opportunity you can get if you want to further evolve and develop in legal matters.

    Cons

    Even if, for a trainee, you're dealing with considerable responsibilities you can sometimes have a lack of tasks given to you.

    Pros

    The level of autonomy in conducting research and promoting new ideas depends on the specific team and your team leader - my own experience has been very positive. Access to resources and the possibility to do networking is rather high. The level of benefits is also very satisfactory.

    Cons

    The policy agenda very much determines whether a project will be continued or not.
