✨Reviews

"The mentorship session with Gabriela is truly useful and fun. She is very generous and kind in sharing her stories which are so fascinating.  At the same time I have learned a lot from her years of experience in the legal field.  She has given me practical advice both on my personal growth and career building. I do recommend others to join the mentorship session with Gabriela." — Francis Chung, Nov 2022

"Gabriela demonstrated her professionalism and shared many insights on the areas of intellectual property and cybersecurity. After the session, I have gained a more holistic view of different categories within IP and the role of law firms in a cybersecurity crisis. I also enjoyed listening to her sharing of her most memorable experience. She definitely inspires me to explore IT law in the future :))" — Brittany Wong, Feb 2022

"Gabriela was friendly and approachable, I felt at ease when asking questions and was able to make full use of the time. She gave me useful career advice from the perspective of a former recruiter. Our discussions on data-privacy and the TMT legal landscape inspired me to read up on these areas afterwards and explore them further in my future internships. I would also like to thank Time Auction for organising this session, it was a valuable opportunity." — Kristy Lam, Feb 2022
