M&T Welcomes Universitas Airlangga Students for ALSA Visit 2018

Last 26 July 2018, Faculty of Law students from Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) visited Makarim & Taira S. as part of their three-day Asian Law Student’s Association (ALSA) Visit. The theme for their program this year is “ASEAN Financial Integration and Financial Technology: Its Benefit and Drawback for Indonesia”. One of our Partners -- a pioneer of fintech in the country and an alumna of UNAIR, Maria Sagrado, and our trainee Nadira Sjarif gave a presentation about the “Legal Aspects Fintech in the Capital and Financial Markets”. Around thirty students gained an understanding of this rising and increasingly complex industry in the context of business, gearing them up for the real world.

The Firm is pleased and proud to share our knowledge and experience as this will help shape aspiring young lawyers to become with professionals with integrity. This kind of opportunity will enable them to manage the complex and ever-changing landscape of the industries and practice areas they will be dealing with as they start their legal careers.
