LAWS5174 Legal Internships

The Legal Internship (LAWS 5174) is a dedicated clinical program within the JD. Students have the opportunity to work in a legal environment one day per week for 12 weeks for academic credit. The students’ experience in their placements is supplemented by regular seminars and an ongoing assessment program designed to build legal skills and encourage reflective practice.  For more information visit the LAWS5174 Legal Internships webpages.

China Internships

The CRCC Asia offers one, two and three month placements throughout the year. The program includes the relevant internship visa, accommodation, weekly Mandarin language classes, Chinese business and culture training, professional networking events and 24 hour support from our teams in Beijing and Shanghai. The program is open to students and recent graduates with a strong academic record.

In the increasingly competitive international employment market, many graduates find that academic credentials alone are not sufficient to find employment, and that work experience, especially in China, can be a huge advantage. Interns on our program gain insight into the Chinese business environment and gain key transferable skills.

Applicants should apply on-line.
