✨Reviews

"Gabriela was very welcoming and kind. She shared her insight on the development of intellectual property law and technology law, which inspired me to learn more about and explore these practice areas. She also gave me invaluable advice towards furthering a career in law, as well as the steps I should take to advance my personal and professional development. Her passion for pro bono and diversity and inclusion really shines through in her work as a leader. I would highly recommend a mentorship session with Gabriela to others." — Errin Lam, Aug 2023

"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
