José Mirza completed his Legal Practice Course (LPC) at The University of Law (ULaw) in 2014 and has recently completed his training contract at eBay, advancing on to become a commercial lawyer for the online giants
I work as legal counsel in eBay's Commercial, Compliance and Product team. The team has a very broad remit, covering a variety of topics and making the role really fascinating. You can negotiate a commercial agreement with a partner, advise the business on consumer rights and review a new product, all before midday.
Law is such a diverse discipline that can open up a number of opportunities. Like most teenagers, I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do when I was trying to choose a career path. A legal education offered someone in my position a lot of options that could cater to different personalities and styles.
I found my legal internship position at eBay through the ULaw employment service and was offered a training contract after the internship ended. It was down to the working relationships I formed that I got my first position at eBay.
I particularly remember the excellent range of external speakers at ULaw. It was great to receive insights and advice from experts in all areas of the legal profession, and even some outside of it.
