Im a legal advisor and programmer from Bucharest, Romania.
I wont be able to say exactly what i like more between the 2 professions. One is passion (programming), one is a real profession which gives the satisfaction of doing what is right for people.
I graduated from the Faculty of Law – Bucharest in 2014, nowadays doing a LLM in Law – Criminal Sciences.
I worked in the last 3 years in major corporations from Bucharest as a legal advisor, specializing miself in civil law, commercial law, tort law and executional law.
I won’t say that I love to work as a corporatist, but I do love my job as a legal advisor.
I personally consider that the legal department is the “break” for other departments, the one that finds legal solutions and prevents – for example sales persons – from signing any kind of contract for the sake of getting a new customer.
And no, I don’t like to stay in-house. I stayed most of my time in courts and public institutions. There is where the real legal practice starts!
Almost from when I know miself, I enjoyed to freelance. I enjoyed to develop and make things work for me. It’s not something new, and even though I never enjoyed mathematics, the algorithms have other semnification when are written in plain code.
I am a web developer trained by nobody. All I know, I learned alone. Is possible!
Many would ask me: why you have a website made in WordPress? Actually, I hate WordPress, but it saved me a tone of time from doing all by miself. And no, this is not a normal WordPress. I modified a lot to consider already that it’s NOT an WordPress!
