Each year, we recruit a limited number of outstanding fresh law graduates who are looking for a long-term career in China.
Lawyers in our Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai offices work as a seamless team to provide a wide range of services to our clients. All of our junior lawyers will have the opportunity to work with lawyers from each of our China offices and may have secondment opportunities during their training.
Students who are completing postgraduate law programs (e.g., LL.M, M.Jur, J.D.) should consider which track is appropriate according to the jurisdiction of their professional qualification.
Our China offices do not have openings for entry-level lawyers without substantive full-time relevant experience.
Students pursuing routes to qualification as a lawyer in other jurisdictions should apply directly to our office in their home jurisdiction for graduate positions.
Entry-level U.S.-qualified lawyers should apply to our U.S. offices directly for first-year associate positions.
For graduate law students with a Chinese law qualification who do not have substantive full-time legal experience, we invite you to apply for our internship program.
Following the successful completion of our internship program, we may make an offer of a permanent position for you to join us as a consultant.
