Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana LLP Welcomes Project Children Intern from Northern Ireland, Colum Mackey
August, 2013 – Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana LLP had the pleasure of hosting Colum Mackey from Northern Ireland as a cultural exchange student through the “Project Children” Internship Program as our guest this summer of 2013.
Colum Mackey, a 20 year old college student who is going into 3rd year studying Law at the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, spent 6 weeks attending court proceedings, commercial real estate closings and other legal meetings with the various attorneys at the firm. Throughout the past few weeks, Colum was exposed to the various aspects of the legal business and the various businesses of firm clients.
As a full service law firm, with approximately 50 attorneys, Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana LLP was able to offer Colum the opportunity to attend several court proceedings, including judicial hearings and oral arguments on motions, attended several real estate transaction meetings on large commercial real estate deals, and attended the closing of a real estate acquisition and construction financing in Manhattan. His internship was supervised by Partner Daniel P. Deegan, the head of the Firm’s Industrial Development Agency (IDA), Municipal Incentives and Government Relations practices.
Project Children, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1975 with the mission to promote peace in Northern Ireland. To date, Project Children has given almost 22,000 children the opportunity to spend a summer in the United States. The cultural exchange program has developed a huge network of coordinators and host families throughout 20 US states. In 1995, Project Children decided to build on the success of the children’s program and extended its reach to university students by initiating the Summer Internship Program, giving students the opportunity to spend the summer in the US while gaining some invaluable work experience in an international setting.
