Placements for law internships offered on BridgEd are available in China and in South Africa (in South Africa, the placement is a combined law and human rights internship)
Our law internships in China are based in the vibrant cities of Shanghai and Chengdu. In these ever-changing cities there are many new western companies taking advantage of an increasingly open Chinese economy to set up operations in China. Most of these firms need legal assistance to satisfy local business requirements and your law project in China will undoubtedly reflect corporate life in this modern, evolving and fast-moving society.
To apply for one of law internships in China, you must have some legal experience – you should be part way through a law course or have completed your studies and are interested in gaining practical work experience in a law firm abroad.
Companies arriving in China need to adapt to the new environment and a different legal system. You will work alongside English speaking local lawyers on a daily basis, one of whom will also act as your supervisor. Your language abilities and understanding of another culture and law will be interesting and useful to Chinese law firms.
We will find you a placement that fits with your own areas of interest. Interns have worked in areas including banking law, mergers and acquisitions, corporate intellectual property, taxation and insolvency. Please let us know of any preferences you may have.
An internship in China with a well-respected law firm in Shanghai or Chengdu could be a valuable addition to your CV in this notoriously competitive profession, and might just secure you that lucrative first job once you graduate.
