Our Hong Kong office offer both summer and winter vacation schemes which provide students the opportunity to gain a strong insight into life at our Hong Kong office, as well as providing a solid account of the type of work encountered as a Hong Kong trainee.
The schemes are for law students who are looking for a training contract which starts in two years’ time. Applicants should have outstanding academic and personal achievements. We are looking for law students who are enthusiastic, personable, intelligent and able to contribute to the firm. We welcome both local and overseas applications.
Our vacation schemes are typically for a three-week period in one of our practice groups. Students will be supervised by one of our partners and work closely with our associates and trainees.
During the placement, students will be given the opportunity to see what working in a law firm is really like. They will be given various tasks such as legal research, translation works, drafting documents and they may have opportunities to attend client meetings and/or go to court. Also, they will be invited to join the talks, firm events and trainings during their time with us.
All vacation students will be considered as training contract applicants and they will be included in the training contract assessments.
There are approximately 16 summer and 8 winter placements available each year.
(Note): In the event that our Hong Kong office implements special arrangement in view of, for example, the outbreak/development of the Covid-19 pandemic, we reserve the right to defer, adjust, shorten, or cancel all or part of our Vacation Placement Programme.
